About
Our kitchen team aim to cook simple, wholesome, homely food without the pretense. We focus on flavoursome dishes that make you want to come back time and time again. If we were to recommend anything on our menu, we'd have to say our steaks...cooked perfectly in our charcoal oven, or our great wood-fired pizzas.
