To Begin ...
Minty Pea Soup(v)
Cooking the peas briefly retains their vibrant colours and the addition of herbs from our garden keeps the finished soup looking and tasting bright.
Mustard-Dill Pancakes with Smoked Salmon and Crème Fraiche
Here's a modern spin on blini, the classic buckwheat pancakes. Topping them with smoked salmon is a delightful way to gild the lily.
Salad of Summer Greens, Roasted Beetroot, Walnuts and Goat Cheese(v)
I use fresh organic beets roasted to perfection the night before, Jerez sherry vinegar, freshly squeezed orange juice and creamy Somerset goat's cheese to make the most delicious salad in the world.
Pan-Roasted Quail with Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad
The seasoned deboned breasts and legs are tender and moist..
|Then the Main Event... |
All of our main courses are served with a selection of fresh vegetables.
Italian-Style Baked Haddock
A fillet of haddock served with a pepper, tomato and basil sauce with a little Parmigiano on top

Skinless boneless chicken breast marinated in fresh herbs (mint, coriander, basil) soy sauce and nam pla and then grilled up smoky and moist.

Grilled salmon fillet with grilled vegetables. The chunky pistou with full pistachio flavour adds depth.
Spicy Barbequed Rib-Eye Steaks(add £2.00)
We marinate the 10 oz rib-eyes with a spicy rub which brings out the flavour of these extra mature steaks.
Twice Baked Gruyere Cheese Souffles with Salad (v)
Flavoured with mustard and fresh thyme, it's a lovely light main course.
Mixed Berry Brown Sugar Pavlova
By its very nature, a Pavlova is a little wild-as proved by these two tiers of airy meringue, which crack and crumble to reveal marshmallowy interiors while the berries' juices puddle all over drifts of whipped cream.
Fresh Fruit Salad
Fresh fruit in season served with ice cream, custard or cream.
Apple and Cranberry Crumble
Dried cranberries add a special sweetness to this classic autumnal dessert. Served with Cornish ice cream.
