What was built as a Victorian pub, is now a popular ground floor bar and comfortable first floor restaurant.
On the food front, the bar offers an all day menu of brasserie-style dishes, while upstairs, the menu expands to include the likes of 'Green Pea Soup'; 'Smoked Trout with Orange, Wild Rocket & Capers'; 'Ballotine of Chicken & Macadamia Nuts with Broad Bean Purée & Bordelaise Sauce' and 'Pan-Fried Diver-Caught Scallops with Confit Cherry Tomatoes, Rocket & Basil Foam' among the starters.
Perhaps 'Short Horn Beef Burger with Triple-Cooked Chips & Salad'; 'Grilled Rainbow Trout with Sauté Potatoes, Peas and Broad Beans, with Garlic & Herb Butter'; 'Char-Grilled Squid & Chorizo, Salad of Chickpeas, Tomatoes & Chili' and ' Confit Aylesbury Duck Leg, Cassoulet of Butter Beans, Toulouse Sausage & Plum Tomato Sauce' listed among the mains.
Those with a sweet tooth might be tempted by 'Vanilla Pannacotta, Blueberry Sauce Sauce & Almond Tuile'; 'Chocolate Fondant, Crème Anglaise & Fruit Compote' or 'Orange Crème Brulée with Candied Orange'.
Their weekend brunches are particularly popular.
