Expect a warm welcome and delicious food at The Baskervilles Hotel, situated in the quiet and peaceful village of Baston.
The recently refurbished a la carte restaurant – which has a Sunday carvery – offers a wide selection of dishes to suit all tastes, from tasty starters through to homemade desserts.
Head chef Karl Turner and his staff pride themselves that all food is sourced locally and is freshly cooked to order.
If you’re looking for a venue for a meal out over the festive period, the restaurant is open on Boxing Day, serving a traditional carvery, and on New Year’s Eve, when a disco and resident DJ will help the evening go with a swing – admission free.
