Eat & Drink

Our chefs create, prepare and cook meals daily for our constantly changing seasonal menu.

Our menu can be described as rustic modern British pub food. All our meats are supplied by Phyllis and Lee Harper at Highgate Butchers, and all other produce is carefully source from respected producers locally wherever possible.

The menu changes daily, and is uploaded to our website by 11am every day.


The largest group booking we accept is 8 people including children, toddlers, and babies (Inside and out).

As the back garden is not covered, we will only take reservations for these tables 48 hours in advance, and it will be weather dependent. You must phone us to reserve the tables in the rear garden.

Please do not try to book multiple tables to make large groups as we will have to cancel your booking.

Please arrive on time for your booking. If you are 15 minutes past your booking time, we will cancel your booking. If you are unable to make your booking, please call us to cancel so we can give the table to someone else.

If you have children, please count them as one person when counting how many people you are for the booking. Dogs, please let us know in your booking notes that you have dogs so we can make sure your table has ample space and so we do not put you next to other bookings that have dogs.
