Restaurant and Bar

Best Western Ariel Restaurant and Food

Breakfast served:

  • Daily: 6am - 9.30am

Breakfast is a full English and continental buffet. Omelettes can be cooked to order by a dedicated omelette chef - just ask for the ingredients you'd like. Our guests particularly like the pancake machine.

The hotel will also create a breakfast to go - request it the night before at reception. It includes a yoghurt, a piece of fruit, a pastry and a sandwich.


The large menu at Junction Restaurant includes 'home-style favourites', like bangers and mash and fish and chips, build-your-own burgers (a particular favourite with our guests), pastas, pizzas, steaks and salads. Some meals are available 24 hours.

Dishes are freshly prepared and meats from the grill are cooked to your liking. Expect to pay £13-£14 on average for a main meal.

This restaurant caters for vegetarian, vegan, lactose free and gluten free diets. If you have any dietary requests, speak to the restaurant team.

Open: 6am - 10pm


The bar serves beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks as well as Starbucks coffee. Guests say that the staff are friendly and polite. A pint of Stella cost £4.50 (December 2016 prices).

Food is served from the bar, too, offering the same menu as the restaurant. See above for more info.

Open: 11am - 11pm
