Food & Drink

Food   –

It is always advisable to book ahead from evening meal and please understand that in our mid-low season, you need to advise me if you want evening meal when you book – 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. See the current menu under the tab above. Dinner is served at 7.00.  I need your orders by c.5.30pm. 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!   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 8am 8.45am – earlier or later by arrangement if we possibly can. Packed lunches (including local ham, mature cheeses, hummus & grilled vegetables on granary) can be prepared for you – please request on arrival.

Special Diets
We usually can accommodate special diets with a little help from you. Advance notice of  is required  of foodstuffs such as gluten free & dairy-free options should be notified so that we can make any special purchases or preparations. Please advise us if you have coeliac disease or other serious medical issues and we will take precautions in the storage, preparation and presentation of foods.  We do not normally make any additional charges for special dietary needs, but reserve the right to make additional charges for additional costs incurred.

We source local, organic, free-range, and Fair Trade ingredients as far as possible.  Our eggs and chicken are free-range,  Lamb and Pork products are sourced from local suppliers whose reputations for excellence are well-deserved. Drink 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!
