Food & Drink

Food   –

Please understand that in our low season, you need to advise me if you want evening meal – I can suggest alternatives too – just phone or mail me

I am passionate about cooking and serving high quality food,  and  am (almost!) embarrassed by praise received for our meals.  I use fresh ingredients for our beautifully cooked breakfasts and dinners.  Choose from our carefully compiled menu and your meal is cooked to order.   This means I can often adapt dishes to avoid ingredients you don’t eat – though it also means I need your order about 1 hour before service.

Your meal is served in our bright, light dining room and at your individual table — so you can chat to other guests if you wish, but can still have your private time!   Do let me know if you have dietary preferences or restrictions, or special events so that I can prepare a menu for you.  Our breakfasts received an AA Golden Egg Cup Award three years running.  You select from our varied menu (Scrambled Eggs and Smoked Salmon is a favourite option). Breakfast is usually served between 8.15am and 9.00am – earlier or later by arrangement if we possibly can.

I change the Dinner Menu seasonally –  see the current menu under the tab above. Dinner is served at 7.00.  I would need your orders by c.6pm.

Packed lunches (including home-baked ham or hummus & grilled vegetables on granary) can be prepared for you on request.


We source local, organic, free-range, and Fair Trade ingredients as far as possible.  Our eggs and chicken are entirely free-range,  Lamb and Pork products are sourced from local suppliers whose reputations for excellence are well-deserved.  Our gardens produce some organic vegetables and summer fruits.


We have a 24hour drinks licence.  Relax with drink in the comfortable lounge – in front of a log fire in winter – or on the garden terrace with magnificent views. The well-stocked Honesty Bar has wine from our carefully chosen selection or a locally brewed beer.  Enjoy a brandy or liqueur after dinner with your coffee.  Even try your morning porridge with a shot of whisky stirred through!
