Hand-out of recipes included to take home with you.

Please let me know on the booking form if you have any particular dietary restrictions and or allergies and I shall do my very best to accommodate them. However, as we’ll be eating ‘family style’ around the table, be aware that we may not be able to especially cater for you. However, rest assured there is always plenty of choice.
