CURRENT 2022 SPRING/SUMMER MENU*

All our dishes are freshly made in house, cooked to order and our produce is sourced locally. Will has done all the hard work for you by creating these dishes, which means there should be no need for you to design your own. Please do not ask us to alter them, as refusal often offends.

If you have specific dietary requirements, we are more than happy to cater for them, just let us know in advance.

*our menu is subject to change depending on availability of seasonal produce.
