Create your own tasting menu, enjoy a selection of plates in the middle of the table; the decision is completely up to you! If you have any dietary requirements or allergies please inform a member of the team.

Great food, delivered to your door

Dishes are individually priced, or you can have 2 courses for £15, or 3 courses for a bargain £18.50 - that's probably cheaper than your Chinese takeaway from those other Delivery people!

The food will keep in the refrigerator for up to four days, and is also freezable. Instructions are provided with your order.

To change things slightly we are adding an optional cheese course to the below menu for an additional £6 per person if you wish!
In order to help everyone in this challenging environment, we are offering a to-your-door delivery service of delicious food prepared by Mark in our restaurant kitchens, for you to eat at home.

(We'll let you know when deliveries resume after our grand re-opening!)

There's always something a bit special about a cocktail. Our signature cocktails are expertly mixed to get your meal off to a brisk start, or wind down in the lounge after a lazy dinner.

We're growing our own!

If you spend a bit of time in our garden, you'll notice beds of herbs, fruit, salads, and vegetables.

There's nothing better than produce straight from the garden to your plate. It doesn't get more locally sourced than that!

A home away from home

Our relaxed environment, friendly staff and great service make for a very special experience.

We're taking all the precautions that keep you, and our staff, safe, and welcome, whatever the circumstances!
