Description
Our aim is to do the simple things right. With our farm to fork ethos, expect an evolving seasonal menu with local produce at every turn. If cosy fires, comfy seats and mighty fine company are at the top of your hit list, you’ll feel very much at home in our bar, café, gin parlour or restaurant. Our influences come from a farming history that is over 100 years old, and this is a story we are very passionate about telling; highlighting how much hard work and dedication goes into creating fine British grown produce.
