The time for hiding is over. Modern cuisine is authentic, unpretentious and local. But at Hide & Seek, we still have a zest for the new and exotic, for flavours that inspire. Asian, Middle-Eastern and Western influences and sweet, savoury, bitter, hot and sour flavours come together in unusual combinations that create explosions of flavour. And once it has been awakened, this desire for luxurious simplicity does not let you go. You need more. More of these enchanting spices, herbs and flavours. More crispy, soft and tender textures. More of this pure, healthy and yet sexy cuisine. Those seeking the key to complete and utter happiness on a plate need look no further.
Bar Hide & Seek
The Hide & Seek bar is open first thing in the morning if you fancy an espresso and a flick through the papers before a round of golf. Come here to relax in the afternoon over tea, coffee and cake. Or wind down the day over a relaxed drink or two here in the evening.

Fresh fish and shellfish also feature highly on the menu, while our tapas are a great choice for a sociable evening spent together with friends or family.
