Executive Chef/Owner Buddy, with Head Chef Vali, have created a delightful and varied menu, utilising locally sourced ingredients, including vegetables from our own garden and, often,

mutton from the field opposite, to tantalise your tastebuds.

Look out for our daily specials and our 2 or 3 course set lunch menu on Thursdays and Fridays too.  

 Our food is freshly prepared and cooked to order. 

You won't find any fast food here and nothing pretentious either... just good food done well.
