Quality produce only

Our kitchen team led by Chris Galvin speaks to our suppliers every day to ensure we only use the freshest produce.  We will never compromise on quality. And if we run out of a dish, we will simply accept that.

“There are no shortcuts to doing something well” Chris Galvin

Beer doesn’t get fresher

Delivered weekly and stored in our gleaming copper tanks above the bar, our fresh unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell on draft is a showstopper of a beer. It’s the closest thing to drinking beer straight from the brewery.
