What is there to eat and drink at The Alan?

Don’t miss out on the hotel’s on-site restaurant.

The small plates are a highlight, with the butterbean houmous and charred lamb breast unmissable, washed down with a signature Fable Highball cocktail.

Skipping out on pudding is advised against too, with the deconstructed Snickers being a rich delight.

The ensuite bathrooms are fitted with huge rainfall showers, pink sinks and toiletries from upmarket skincare brand Haeckels.
