Our General Manager, Harry Murley, has put together a choice of wines, which has been paired with our menus and the seasons with the help of Head Chef Geraldine Gay and our wine supplier. The aim is to have a range of wines for every palate, to match the food, or just offer an easy going glass of something sublime.
We hope you will find a favourite as well. Please ask should you need any recommendations or advice…
While food and wine matching is not an exact science, we have, wherever possible, indicated appropriate recommendations throughout our list.
