Our menus feature a variety of dishes showcasing the adventurous use of fresh ingredients by our team of chefs led by Matthew Colchester. Fresh fish and seafood is a speciality. Classic British pub food also features and on Sundays traditional roast lunches are a popular choice.

Well kept real ales from the bar include Adnams, Woodfordes and Greene King. A large range of carefully selected wines are served by the glass, or treat yourself to a cocktail from our blackboard list.

Menus & Wine List (all PDF Format)
Our current menus closely resemble those below but may change.

Meals for Children
We are keen to encourage children to experience a wide range of flavours so offer smaller portions of some adult dishes as well as classic kids' favourites.

We love children but ask that you have consideration for other diners should they become unsettled. Also, due to lack of space, we request that you refrain from bringing in prams or buggies at busy times.

Special diets
Our food is freshly cooked so we can modify many menu items to cater for those on special diets such as Gluten Free and Dairy Free.
