The Bar Food Menu

Monday – Thursday 12.00 (noon) – 9.30pm    Friday – Saturday 12.00 (noon) – 10pm All menus are sample menus and are subject to change.

We are dedicated to creating classic British food with a modern twist, made from fresh local ingredients, supplied by people we know and trust. We keep what has been described as ‘one of the best wine lists in the region’, along with quality cask-conditioned ales (including our own Sam’s Special Bitter).
