Evening meals

For a completely relaxing evening why not take advantage of our home cooked evening meals which if ordered in advance are available most nights. We offer two courses which are served in the dining room or on the patio in warmer weather. Whenever possible we use seasonal produce from our own vegetable and fruit garden or sourced from the many excellent producers in the surrounding area. Meals are simply cooked with the minimum of fuss thus letting the ingredients speak for themselves. As we are not licensed you are more than welcome to bring your own wine and beer – we will supply the necessary glasses, corkscrews and fridge space.

If you are visiting friends or family in the area and would like to invite them round for a private evening meal, then all you need to do is contact us in advance to discuss the menu. We can comfortably seat eight people in our private dining room.

If you have any special dietary requirements or any particular likes or dislikes then please let us know in advance.

For a two course meal the cost is £18 per person. Please select the same dish for each course.
