    SOLAS News

    The SOLAS car park has been upgraded and expanded over the last two weeks. David Maher explains: “We knew the car park was not up to the standard of the rest of what we had created here so it was very high on our priority list to have this upgraded before the peak garden season started.

    “This effectively brings all major building works for the season ahead.”

    Hot Food

    This weekend’s menu will include Louisiana mash up with chicken, hot sauce, fries and blue cheese sauce. Or try our Stuffed Croissant – with 3 cheeses, Roast Pepper and Pesto. Option of indoor or heated outdoor dining in the amazing SOLAS courtyard.
