During these uncertain times, Sentry Mead has changed the way breakfast is served to ensure our guests feel safe at all times.
The usual continental buffet is now served directly to guests from the kitchen.
Guests can choose to dine in our spacious dining room where they will be fully waited on.  Or guests can pre-order the night before from a special menu and collect their breakfast at a designated time.  They are then free to take their breakfast to their rooms, or out on our terraces – wherever they feel most at ease.
