The Potting Shed restaurant at Dormy House offers a third dining option. 

The Lygon Bar & Grill

Since the extensive refurbishment at The Lygon Arms which was completed in Summer 2016, the Lygon Bar & Grill has become one of our favourite restaurants on date night. The great hall has always been beautiful and it’s a special space to enjoy. There is a lovely menu with plenty of choice - we particularly like the twice baked cheese souffle starter.


For main course we have had a perfectly cooked chateaubriand to share and on another occasion delicious Dover sole and an equally tasty bubble & squeak with hollandaise sauce & a poached egg. The traditional crumble pudding is scrummy and so is the tiramisu. There is also a vegan menu available as well as the vegetarian options. Choose one of the cosy lounges for a coffee or something stronger - the barkeeper will have lots of cocktails to tempt you! To book online or check the latest menus visit I’m looking forward to trying the beef wellington one day soon….


Afternoon Tea at The Lygon Arms Broadway


Afternoon tea is a such a lovely British institution, and enjoying it in The Lygon Arms in Broadway is a real treat! On a chilly Friday afternoon we thoroughly enjoyed sitting in one of the beautifully refurbished lounges and indulging in scrumptious sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, and delicious dainty cakes! There is a choice of different teas and the optional addition of champagne or a cocktail. There is also a Chase afternoon tea menu with a Chase cocktail of the month, and vegan or gluten-free menu choices are available too. Classic afternoon tea is £25 per person and is available from 2.30pm - 5.30pm. From a birthday treat to a romantic valentine's surprise - make someone smile!

PS. As I am still on crutches due to breaking my leg I was very please that the new refurbishment has included a ladies room on the ground floor.
