Fine Dining Menus

Our development kitchen has been buzzing during the process of creating our new menus for 2017. The focus has been on innovation, originality and current trends.
Our ingredients are sourced from award winning local suppliers, meats are aged correctly and fruit and vegetables are chosen with the seasons in mind. We smoke and cure our own range of poultry, meat and fish in house to ensure the very best flavours.
We have always made a point of saying: the dishes on our menus are just suggestions! We love getting to work with our clients on new ideas which better reflect the tastes and preferences of hosts and guests alike.
