Monthly Food Gatherings

CURRENTLY on HOLD until further notice

Launched as TAPAS NIGHT with sharing food these evenings often morph into special supper evenings, one might say ‘supper club’.  Evenings where Penny and the kitchen bridgade have a chance to shine, built around some of the amazing produce we sell through the deli and farm shop the menu rarely finalised untill a couple of days before…


Monthly on the LAST THURSDAY (mostly!)

£25 per person £10 non refundable deposit requested when booking




Off Piste…

Our menu is as you woud expect, within reason, always available, but of course we are as mentioned elsewhere foodies through and through… and it would be a crying shame to stiffle invention and inspiration so please ALWAYS check the black boards, invariably there will be something to tempt you!
