Food & Drink

The award-winning food in our restaurant is prepared from quality produce, sourced locally whenever possible, used in season to get the best results.

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 from £12.95 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.

We also have a Children's Menu. We are enthusiastic about encouraging children to experience a wide range of tastes and flavours so offer smaller versions of some adult dishes as well as classic kids' favourites.

Special diets - because our food is freshly cooked we can modify many menu items to cater for those on special diets such as gluten free.

We get very busy - please contact us on 01603 737 077 to book a table.

We look forward to welcoming you.
