The MCR – Restaurant and Bar

The MCR Restaurant & Bar is the perfect retreat for our members, guests, residents and those who work in the Inn. MCR Manager Joe and his team offer a warm welcome to both old friends and new.

The Restaurant and Bar has been fully and sensitively refurbished, to reveal intricate botanical patterns on our stunning vaulted ceiling. The original architecture and detailed stonework which once formed part of our Victorian kitchens creates a truly atmospheric experience.

Head Chef David Bush and his culinary team have created some delicious seasonal menus for you and your guests. You can enjoy a formal lunch, a lighter lunch or if you’re tight on time, our ‘Chef’s Menu’.

The evening brings a more relaxed ambiance with food and drink designed to bring you and your guests together. Our small plates are ideal for a light supper or the perfect accompaniment to drinks and conversation.

Sip and savour a perfectly curated cocktail or enjoy a tipple from our intriguing range of spirits, wines and crafted beers. Take a seat at the bar or entertain friends, clients and colleagues at your table, it’s the perfect place to unwind.

Pull up a seat on the Garden Terrace for an entirely immersive experience. Our diligent Gardens team have established a beautiful botanical planted border, framing the terrace, with enviable views of New Square and the Jubilee fountain. When the nights draw in, you can continue to enjoy your evening under our heated parasols or move inside, snuggle into a cosy armchair and sip an infused gin from our extensive range.
