Dems Brasserie & Pilgrims English Restaurant

Welcome to Dems Brasserie

Welcome to Dems Brasserie

One of our two fantastic hotel restaurants, Dems Brasserie offers delightful French cuisine, freshly cooked from locally-sourced ingredients, all at a surprisingly affordable price. 

Our three superb house pianists play live in the restaurant from 5.30 pm every Wednesday and Thursday, and from 7.30 pm on Friday and Saturday.  They each have their own unique repertoire and are hugely popular.  Alex Rose recently released his first CD (visit, Luke Smith has a vast 700 tune piano repertoire and Lori Warsop has won numerous musical awards and as well as being a professional musician also teaches brass and piano when not performing in Dems.

Our beautifully stylish VIP private dining facility 'Paris' is also available to book (see Functions & Meetings) and caters from 2 to 12 in comfort and style.  It's ideal for parties and other celebrations.

We advise booking your table as the restaurant is very popular and can get extremely busy - the booking facility is below:
