Eat & Drink

We open our doors at 9am and hot and cold food is served all day every day. Our relaxed restaurant uses the finest ingredients to serve delicious, unfussy, seasonal food. Wherever possible this is local, wild and organic. The menus are always inventive, with a modern British foundation and an international twist. We are loyal to our suppliers, whether it is our local farmer, or Jim Baker and his organic old spot pigs in Wedmore! Our menu is overseen by Tom Blake, Executive Chef, alongside Head Chef, Jake Beale.
