Summer Sit Down Menu

Our fine dining experience starts with local breads from our artisan baker ‘The Bread Factory’, served with whipped Netherend Farm butter and our homemade hummus.

We are inspired by the international influences found in modern British cuisine and use seasonal ingredients from our great suppliers, such as Lake District Farmers, Rhug Estate organic farmers, Mash Purveyors and Murray’s Fresh Fish to create a wide variety of dishes.

Because we use seasonal ingredients, our menus will change slightly throughout the seasons to reflect the best produce available.
