Discover Our Menu
Enjoy a delicious full course menu or just light meals in a relaxed setting. Our menu provides you with a balance choice of British classics, and Chef specials, Oriental inspired starter dishes, all using ingredients from local suppliers where possible, and prepared on site freshly.
Our Wines are chosen by David himself, tasting each bottle of wine, and made sure they would go nicely with his dishes, and of course reasonably priced too according to the quality of the wines.
