Food and Drink

Fresh coffee, genuine British breakfasts, home baked cakes, simple lunches, slap up dinners and of course alcohol, including a Shanghai class wine list. Produce is locally sourced or homemade (the bacon is cured by us from the excellent local pork), and we do not like waste so dinners only are cooked to order.

(Please note: We do NOT have our own rooms for accommodation. Please see the Hotels Page for ideas)

Opening hours: Daily 8.30am to 11pm except, closed Wednesday, and no meals on Tuesdays.


Served from 8.30 am until lunch starts, which is usually about 11.30 am


Pasta or bacon sandwiches or a salad


One meal for everyone. First to choose the main course, that’s what everyone else eats, and by everyone else we mean the entire restaurant. To be sure to get what you want, go here and then send an email to us at with your request. If you are first, you get it. If you are not the first, we tell you what is booked for that night and you choose to eat with us or not.

The ONLY flexibility we allow is for vegetarians and children. Rabbit food for veggies can be arranged by special arrangement. Pastas from the lunch menu can be served for children, but are best ordered in advance too please.

Dinner is served at 7.30pm on the dot.

We choose the starters and puddings according to numbers of guests (and children and rabbits) and the weather. We try to offer a choice of puddings but cannot always guarantee to.

Books, Games and DVDs

We have a good-sized library and some games for rainy days or fine evenings on the terrace. You are welcome to borrow books and some are for sale, including the Moganshan ‘classic’, ahem, China Cuckoo. We also have a collection of DVDs which you can watch in the Lodge or borrow for your hotel room/laptop.

We can also offer...

Directions for light strolls, serious hikes, and mountain bikes

We can point you in the right direction for a tour of the village or a longer hike. Since the start of any hike starts from the top of the mountain, bear in mind that you’ll have to climb up again at the end. Or we can arrange to have you picked up. Our popular “Temple Hike” passes by an excellent local restaurant for lunch. A sketch map is on the back of our flyer, available at the bar.

The area around the mountain has many trails for mountain biking. Ask for a local map from us and we’ll show you were to go for the best trails.

Guided hikes and mountain biking is in the works. Ask at the bar for details.
