For breakfast, the ‘confit field mushrooms’ drizzled in balsamic glaze and served with sourdough bread, sautéed spinach and crème fraiche was seriously to die for! Other choices for breakfast were numerous, ranging from muesli, croissants, a generous house egg and bacon roll to the traditional English Breakfast with grilled chorizo or haloumi) for the very hungry.
Lunch can match anyone’s budget from an all day breakfast, wraps, salads or a wide variety of simple favourites or more hearty gourmet dishes. Delicious muffins and warm english styled sticky puddings provide a nice treat or winter warmer after a walk or bike ride.
At the weekends the restaurant also stocks and operates the kiosk nearby for those who are seeking smaller snacks for on the go, to restock some picnic supplies or who maybe just can’t get a table.
