With our executive chef Roy Branch and his team, we have fantastic menu’s changing seasonally and house specialties daily on our boards with Wines and Champagne’s available.

 

Roy has also been working with Sara our manager to create a wonderful home cooked Gluten free menu.  Together they have managed to come up with a menu full of delicious dishes that all Coeliac's crave. Sara has been a Coeliac for the last 30 years and is always on hand to offer guidance.
