Our Food

Our main menu food is French gastronomic at its core, with some international influences such as Catalan, Italian and  Thai. Fresh, local ingredients predominate, including vegetables, fruit and herbs, some grown in the pub’s garden. All our food is produced in our own kitchen from fresh raw ingredients. We also feature classic pub dishes such as our own Beef & Cask Ale Pie, and Fish and Chips each accompanied by our hand cut triple cooked chips.

The menu is marked with dishes suitable for those with the special dietary needs, vegetarians, gluten intolerance and dairy free, we can also cater for other special dietary needs although it is always worth giving us a call in advance so we can be prepared. We make everthing ourselves so we know what’s in it!

Now Serving our Autumn Menus:

We are also proud of our wine selection with some carefully selected French wines – some from family run vineyards where Rick and  Heather know the owners personally – along with the best quality New World wines.

Best Sunday roast we have had this year. Original choices of starters & desserts & beef cooked to perfection. Will now make this our regular Sunday spot.

Wow the food was so yummy! Will travel up again from Cornwall for the duck and lamb – thank you.

Best meal out for a long time
