Our imaginative starter menu is designed so not only can you indulge in a tasty beginning to your meal, but can be used in the style of a tapas menu.

Sunday Roast

We serve a traditional Sunday roast based on the one my mother cooked for my sister and I as children. This of course means great quality meat from the local butcher, large homemade Yorkshire pudding served with every meat, sage onion stuffing, a good selection of vegetables, with cauliflower cheese being a must, roast parsnips glazed with honey, tasty roast potatoes cooked in meat juices & rosemary from our garden, finished this with chef Stirling’s secret gravy.
