Our versatile menus champion local produce from the surrounding villages and regularly feature dishes from our very own Smokehouse.

We are one of very few restaurants in this country with our own smokehouse and it's hardly surprising that smoked dishes are appearing on the menu with increasing prominence because clients love the unique taste. The smokehouse has got better with age, and we have great fun experimenting with dishes and discovering something new and exciting. Our most popular ingredients are salmon, mackerel, haddock, mushrooms and cheese.

Also being passionate about wines, we work hard to create an outstanding and unique wine offering, alongside specialist spirits and real ales straight from the cask. Whether you are looking for a business lunch, intimate dinner, afternoon tea or a group celebration, there really are plenty of excuses to make a visit.
