History of Gilroy’s

The name Gilroy’s comes from the famous artist John Gilroy who is famed for his work for Guinness and the marketing of this world famous product.

Around the hotel you will find his influence with framed work depicting the early advertising he produced and also our dickens themed mural which adorns the walls in our other eatery The Dickens Bar and Bistro. He painted this in 1946 to clear a debt he owed to the owner and it still stands proud as a talking point for all of our visitors to view.

To keep the menu fresh and seasonal we provide sample menus on the website to give you a taste of what we offer. If you wish to see the most up to date menu email a request through to

Gilroy’s Dining Room

The Morritt’s award-winning restaurant serves up innovative dishes that vary according to what’s in season.

Ingredients are carefully sourced from local suppliers – pork and eggs come from the owner’s farm, just a few miles away. Fruits – apples, pears, plums, damsons and grapes – handpicked from the farm are used to make deliciously fresh jams and sauces.

Gilroy’s is smart without being stuffy – splashes of colour juxtapose with oak panelling, a woodblock floor and leather-upholstered seating.

Our Delighted Clientele

Staff were lovely, hotel was lovely, food was brilliant and the beds were unbelievably comfy. Wouldn’t have got up other than the breakfast being perfect every morning. Will definitely be staying again.

Nice old building that is easily accessible. Well appointed with properly trained staff. Been eating there for many years and always had a good experience. Interesting how some restaurants can produce a Sunday Lunch and some cannot. This is one of the can does. Splendid choice of starters and mains to match.
Give it a try. You won’t regret it.

The garage spa is cute and compact and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The treatments my group indulged in were gorgeous and we enjoyed the hot tubs, steam and salt rooms. Thoroughly relaxing and topped off with a yummy afternoon tea over at the hotel to end the day.
