Calm and tranquil bar in delightful setting serving beers, wines and cocktails. Lots of choice and friendly, helpful staff as they are throughout the whole of Raithwaite Estate.

Good cocktails and a great place to drink before a meal. Friendly staff will make off menu cocktails and deliver them to your tail We enjoyed.

Can't believe that Raithwaite have taken the decision not to offer bar food in the Poachers bar after 5pm!? This is a lovely hotel but the menu in the Brace restaurant isn't to all tastes, however supplement with food in the bar this covers those...More
