Our Food

We are very proud to have been voted finalists in the 2016 Somerset Life Food and Drink Awards, as Best Gastro-Pub and Best Newcomer, in our first year of opening!

Our dining experience is born from a passion to deliver honest and great tasting homemade food with a warm and friendly service.  Our menu’s change regularly with what’s in season and our Chef’s creativity.  We are not bound by any particular style or culture just whatever we get excited about!  This means our menus are influenced by the world’s cuisines, from succulent steaks and mouth watering fish to our famous duck dishes and not forgetting our gorgeous desserts.

  We love food, lots of different food, just like you.
