Our Menus

We are so proud to have been the recipient of the coveted 4AA star and 2 AA rosettes last year.

Although we are having to reopen and operate our restaurant in a very different way, we are committed to serving delicious dishes that include only the freshest of ingredients, lovingly prepared fresh to order under the guidance of Matthew Tomkinson.

Matt has devised his restricted menus to allow you to choose from a smaller range, and includes some of his Modern British cuisine, coupled with Traditional Pub Favourites, 

Matt’s signature 6-course surprise-tasting menu is available by pre order.

During the summer months, we will be open all day serving lunch and dinner. Please click on the link below to download our sample menus. Dishes may vary slightly due to seasonality and availability of produce.
