The Bar at The Wight Hotel
Our bar is open all day and is for the exclusive use of hotel clients and those taking meals in our restaurant, thus avoiding the overcrowding and at times rowdy behavior that often occurs in bars which are open to the general public. Alec Merrick, our very popular Bar Manager for the past 8 years, and his wife Jill ensure that it is stocked to suit most tastes and features an adequate selection of luxury brand whiskies, cognacs, armagnacs etc..
All Round Entertainment
Children, provided that they are accompanied by their parents, are allowed in (but please, not at) the bar – but on the clear expectation that their parents will restrain them from running around and spoiling for other guests the enjoyment of what is, by nature and tradition, an adult environment. We have a saying: “We don’t mind children – but we do mind parents who don’t mind their children!”
Please note that the hotel operates a total ban on smoking and this include all bedrooms and also the grounds at the rear of the hotel – the only area where smoking is permitted is the car park at the front of the hotel. We greatly hope that this will not inconvenience or upset any of our guests but warn that the rule is rigorously enforced and that anyone found to be breaching same will be requested to leave the hotel.
