All the food is freshly prepared on the premises and sourced from local suppliers. We endeavour to only use foods that are in season and only of the highest quality. The Menu changes with the seasons, as does the atmosphere in the dining room
From intimate & cosy with an open fire during the winter, to light & airy with fresh flowers throughout the summer months. The restaurant is really quite different to most, as we do not follow trends, it is, therefore, much more individual and there is a sort of country elegance about it. The atmosphere is relaxed and the lighting is soft and warm
Whatever you choose, whether one of our wide range of quality wines by the glass, your favourite pint or one of our freshly ground coffees, it’s sure to go down well. We pride ourselves to serve properly presented drinks with a warm welcome. Real Ales are supplied by the Sharp’s brewery located at the Rock Cornwall and The Wickwar Brewing Company based at Wickwar in Gloucestershire
