                  Spring Menu Sneak Peek

                  As the season changes, so does our menu, so join Patrycja and Head Chef Leon Higham, for a sneak peek evening before we launch, tasting through our new menu.

                  We always serve the good stuff – in Spring that means the earliest and best Hampshire asparagus, day-boat fish hot-foot from Brixham,Yorkshire rhubarb and superb farmhouse cheeses. As the days lengthen and sunshine returns we look forward to sitting outside with a glass of our favourite wine and a plate of something delicious.

                  There’ll be six courses, with wine. When it comes to settling the bill, just pay what you think the dinner was worth. Limited spaces, 7pm arrival. Call the pub on 01926 359960 or book online and quote ‘Spring Menu Tasting’.

                    Mother’s Day

                    We’ll be open as usual for breakfast, so why not change tradition this year and start off with a Buck’s Fizz Breakfast before heading out for the day? (Not forgetting our Breakfast G&T too!)

                    We serve up the favourites alongside new classics and always prioritise quality produce. We are serious about our roasts, so settle in with the family and enjoy top-quality beef from Aubrey Allen, Jimmy Butler’s free-range pork or our delicious vegetarian roast with all the glorious trimmings. Enjoy our Sunday Best Menu alongside delicious specials, served right through till 9pm. Always busy, be sure to book early.

                      Spring Lamb Supper

                      As Easter approaches, we’re adhering to tradition with a supper enjoying sweet and tender lamb. We only use free-range Cornish lamb from Aubrey Allen, the very best quality available in Britain. As a result we pay more for our meat than most of our competitors – but you can definitely taste the difference – and we know our meat comes directly from farmers who have the highest welfare standards and respect for their animals.

                      Join us as we take a visit to our award-winning butcher’s, followed by dinner back at the pub. £30pp, includes Aubrey tour and dinner. Talk to us in the pub to book or call us on 01926 359960.

                        Easter Monday brings you our Bank Holiday Best Menu, full of pub classics and a roast rollover to cure any hangover. We’ll have the Bloody Marys ready.
