Our Food

Our ethos on food and customer service is to keep things simple, honest and maintain a standard that sets us apart from the rest. Sourcing ingredients from local suppliers, using local businesses to provide us with the best seasonal produce, even utilising local allotments to provide us with something special, we strive to create a menu that provides tasty food both at lunchtime and dinner.
