          You can't use the pool unless you are staying there. The gate leading to the hotel has a sign that says that. But if you go to the restaurants pool - you could possibly ask them if you could use it if it's not busy.

          I've emailed Bishop's 3x now (no response as of yet) about breakfast and phoned them but the number doesn't appear to connect. I'm vegetarian and wanted to know if they could either make the full English vegetarian by substituting sausages/bacon for vegetarian alternatives (i.e. Veggie sausages, hash browns etc). Or if they could make eggs florentine (replacing the ham/salmon with spinach on their eggs Benedict) I've not received a response and we are going there next week - this would be really helpful to know.
