Food and Drink

The Silken Strand Hotel offers excellent food, locally sourced wherever possible. During summer months the Garden Terrace will be available for dining or to enjoy a drink from the extensive menu on offer

The hotel prides itself on providing friendly, unrivalled service delivered by a passionate dedicated team

With food, our aim is to source as much as possible from the local area, using local suppliers, and using only certified producers. All dishes are prepared and cooked on the premises, by Chefs and Cooks, there are no Microwaves present anywhere in the building

The Silken Strand Hotel serves a wide variety of Drinks, on Draught, Technical Draught and Bottled

Our draught beers are: Coors Light, Magners Gold, Grolsch, Amstel, Doom Bar (Our House Ale) and a Guest Ale

On Technical Draught, there is Guinness Surger. Guinness introduced the "surger" in Britain in 2006. The surger is a plate-like electrical device, that sends ultrasonic waves through a Guinness-filled pint glass that energises the Nitrogen to recreate the beer's "surge and settle" effect. The device works in conjunction with special cans of surger-ready Guinness. Guinness tried out a primitive version of this system in 1977 in New York. The idea was abandoned until 2003, when it began testing the surger in Japanese bars, most of which are too small to accommodate traditional keg-and-tap systems. Since then, the surger has been introduced to bars in Paris, Australia, Singapore and the EU. The surger for the US market was announced on 14 November 2007; plans were to make the unit available to bars only. It was heralded as the "Smallest Keg in the world"

There is a Large range of Bottled beers, Ciders and Fruit infusions available as well 

There are 4 eating and drinking areas available to guests and residents alike:

Cafe Bar

Why not start your day with us in the Cafe Bar, serving an array of Breakfast options from a full english to a coffee and a pastry, there will be enough to please any palate. The Cafe Bar is open for breakfast 7 days a week. If not there for breakfast, it is ideal as a lunch spot, and an afterwork watering hole. The street level bar located at the front of the hotel, is perfect for  afterwork gatherings, speedy Business lunches and afternoon drinks

Cellar Bar

A warm welcome always awaits in The Cellar Bar at The Silken Strand Hotel. Located in the original 18th Century store rooms, with its bare bricked walls and low vaulted ceilings, The Cellar Bar is also home to La Bodega Tapas restaurant

Enjoy this unique atmospheric underground experience with a loved one, friends or colleagues and be swept away with Spanish delight with an English Georgian style.

If you are lucky enough to visit The Cellar Bar on a quite night, and you are dining or drinking with the candle light slowly diming, you too may be honoured to see one or two of the former occupants, who after 300 years still never want to leave


This hallowed lounge is the perfect place for after hours cognac and other tasteful libations. The original feature fireplace with its 19th century mirror, gilded coat of arms and corniched ceiling resonates the ballroom origins of the room. These features help create an elegant late Georgian setiing for sealing busines deals or for just recovering from a hectic day as you look out through the open bay doors onto a sculpted garden and Cabana.

The room has an almost empathic ability to change its ambiance for what is required of it

It is from here that our residents can enjoy a cooked or continental breakfast to start the day, or persons of leisure can enjoy a languid afternoon tea. In the evening couples and families can dine, whilst enjoying a feature film on our 10ft drop down cinema screen
