Wines

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…
