Our Menu


Our breakfast menu includes pastries, breakfast sandwiches & cooked breakfasts all made with quality ingredients and free range eggs.  

For lunch we offer our regular favourites and a specials menu which changes fortnightly.  Our Winter warming menu includes the Holy Cow homemade burger, braised beef and veg pie, vegetable curry, chilli wraps and the always popular pulled pork with Hoisin sauce on a toasted bun. To accompany the above, or simply to eat on their own, we have a range of nutritious, tasty salads.  Both our lunch and breakfast menu has vegetarian and gluten free options available. 

There are now eight types of coffee and a variety of teas and if you fancy something sweet the selection of homemade cakes provided by our farmhouse kitchen or the famously rich and tasty The Pudding Kitchen should do the trick!

Saturdays & Sundays are breakfast only but with a menu even more delicious!
