We’re open all day with an ever changing, seasonal, fresh food menu to cater for long, indulgent, multi-course feasts or the simplest of snacks – all available in our restaurant, bar or old smoking room.
Breakfast is served from 8.00am – 11am (from 7.30am for residents) every day of the week.
A full menu is available from 12-9.00pm every day except Tuesday when the kitchen is briefly closed between 3pm and 6pm, and on Fri and Sat the kitchen is open until 9.30pm.
Food and drink in the bar
Drop in at any time to eat at our bar, enjoy brunch, or for a hot drink and delicious homemade cake in the old smoking room. We serve great coffee and a large selection of teas.
Our relaxed restaurant uses the finest ingredients to serve simple, unfussy, seasonal, fresh food. Wherever possible this is local, wild and organic. We are loyal to our suppliers, whether it is our local fishermen, or Jim Baker and his organic old spot pigs in Wedmore!
Our menu is overseen by Tom Blake, Executive Chef, alongside Head Chef, Steve Yates.
Special occasion? Looking to celebrate? Adjoining the restaurant, we have a private dining room, which can seat up to 8 guests.
We welcome children and have a kid’s menu for them to choose from or they can choose smaller versions of dishes on the main menu.
