To eat well is to live well.
Someone very wise first said that.
And it's an idea that we keep in the back of our minds as we put together the menu for the bar each day
That person wasn't talking about starched tablecloths and fine china and foams. They were talking about enjoying honest food prepared simply and with respect to the ingredients.
They imagined sitting at a table with their close friends and family; sharing a story and breaking bread.
That's why our food is prepare by only the best seasonal produce and always where possible from local producers who share our values. This means we know where the food comes from and exactly how it's been treated.
And our favourite place to source ingredients?

So as you read this menu, know that it's probably already out of date and that we're ok with this because the best produce at the markets one day is always going to be different from the last.
