 Evening meals are available, by prior arrangement. These are simple 2-course affairs and cost £12 per person. We use local and home produced ingredients whenever possible. Take a look at our sample menu page for an idea of what we do.


We also have an Indian takeaway, which delivers for a small fee or if it is convenient we will take you to a nearby eatery and bring you home.
