The restaurant, which reopened on the 16th May, features an open plan, theatre style grill kitchen on the outdoor terrace. complete with nearby fire pits.

Diners can watch teams of chefs transform regionally-sourced ingredients into dishes in the heart of the restaurant, creating a culinary visual experience.

The available selection includes locally sourced grilled meats, seafood, British classics and tasty fine-dining dishes in an open-plan setting for both residents and non-hotel guests alike.

Hero dishes include the grilled lobster in garlic butter as well as the FYR surf and turf platter for two which boasts 8oz sirloin and 7oz fillet steaks, Atlantic king tiger prawns and dressed Cornish brown crab served with Hampshire watercress, smoked tomatoes, skin on fries and Solent Marie rose sauce.
