About
We use the very best produce foraged, grown, fished, farmed and caught from the land and sea around us, as well as fruit, vegetables and herbs from our own walled garden in Netherby Hall. From the kitchen we serve a menu of contemporary dishes expertly prepared by our team of chefs. No compromise is made with the ingredients or the execution. We also have local ale on tap, a huge range of expertly chosen wines to suit all tastes and budgets, a dartboard for amusement, a roaring fire to warm the cockles and a bowl of water for the dog.
