Eating at Number 6

Our breakfasts are cooked to order using local produce where possible.

We strive to accommodate all diets and preferences and, should you have any specific requirements including vegan or gluten free options, please let us know in advance of your stay with us.


The best breakfasts are a leisurely affair to be lingered over and we serve from 8am to 9.30am, with earlier breakfasts available by arrangement. We offer a buffet with cereals, fruit, toast and preserves followed by your choice of a hot breakfast – all prepared fresh to order. Our eggs are free-range, the meat is from Radford's Butchers and we have vegan sausages.

Start with cereals, fresh fruit and fruit juice from the buffet, followed by your choice of:

Number 6 is just a short walk away from a good choice of restaurants and bars – look at our Local attractions page for more information on some popular places – but should you prefer to bring in your own food or grab a takeaway please let us know and we will set a table for you in the dining room.  We’re not licensed so please feel free to bring a bottle.
