Our fine dining dinner restaurant is not available to children under the age of 10. We do however have a range of options for you.

Babysitting services are available. You and your partner may have the night off and enjoy a dinner in our restaurant whilst one of the Hartford Team, babysit. You can dine in the knowledge that an experienced “mom” is with your child and they are not far away should you wish to pop ion and check. Chef Chris Papayannes and his team will draw up a healthy dinner option to be delivered at a convenient time.

Family dining, should you prefer to dine as a family we can arrange dinner in an alternate venue for you and the family. If you prefer the privacy of your suite this can be done too. You may enjoy our 5 course feast whilst your children enjoy a simpler dinner created by Chef Chris Papayannes and his team.
