Our Menu

Our menu has been created around the ethos of fun with finesse. We are a fine dining experience, with the excitement of a more casual environment.

We also cater for all dietary requirements with plenty of vegetarian dishes which we can alter to vegan, especially with notice, and almost our entire menu is gluten free.
