House Focaccia

Daniel’s freshly baked bread changes its blend every day. You’ll taste the herbs from the garden mixed perfectly with the likes of Polenta, Olive, Salsa Verde & charred Leek.

Fish Platter

A great option for lunch, especially for sharers. Enjoy beetroot cured salmon, pan fried sea bream, battered cod goujons & tartare sauce, Complimented with a salad of crayfish & prawns.


Seasoned Fries

Our seasoned skinny fries are incredibly moreish, with truffle & parmesan.

A must have side!


Gin & Tonic cured Salmon

Sea Bream

Israeli couscous provides a tasty base for the pan fried sea bream, whilst fennel & blood orange give depth to the dish.

Cooper King Dry Gin

Whispering Angel Rosé

After listening to Jessie Ware’s podcast - Table Manners, we just had to get the Whispering Angel in. Dry, crisp, with Strawberry & Orange blossom notes - it’s very sophisticated.

Too easy to drink…

Just how we like it.
