• WINE BAR OPEN MONDAY - SATURDAY 12noon-11pm (Food served 12-2.15pm and 6-9.15pm) Booking advisable for both lunch and dinner but we do take walk-ins when space allows, particularly lunch time and week days.
  • OUR GARDEN IS OPEN when we are... so if the weather's looking good and you fancy being outside albeit with a coat on as it's pretty chilly at the moment, do come and relax in our gorgeous garden. We've put some of the furniture away for the winter but there's still plenty of space out there to sit and enjoy whatever spring sunshine we can muster!
  • NEW LOCAL WINES...  It's incredible the quality of wine being produced in the West Country these days, with sparkling wines still being what I think our climate and wine makers can do best! We've added to our local wine selection with two of Dorset's Lyme Bay Winery portfolio: the big, bold, traditional-method Classic Cuvée sparkling, available by the glass, and also their wonderful crisp white 'Shoreline' blend, by the bottle, perfect with many fish dishes. We still love the Furleigh Estate Classic Cuvée and serve this by the glass, of course, as well as their sparkling rosé by the bottle, as well as Sandridge Barton's Sharpham Rosé sparkling by the bottle.
  • NEW WINES TO TRY Another new thing to try on the list is an awfully moreish oaked Chardonnay from Portugal's Quinta do Casal, a sister wine to our very popular full-bodied juicy Forma de Arte touriga nacional/cabernet blend which has been flying on our list for a good year or so. We're also now serving Babylonstoren's fabulous Mourvedre rosé by the glass too. By the bottle we have some lovely additions to our premium list including Vasse Felix Cabernet from Margaret River, a great organic Ribera del Duero from Dominio Basconcillos, and a stonking Grand Vin de Bordeaux called Origines, from Chateau Grand Francais amongst others. So pop in and try some new things!
  • Don't forget if you're staying on the soft stuff, life doesn't have to be boring! Have you tried these delicious non-alcoholic aperitifs from local Weston company 'Drinks Kitchen'? Choose from  Orange Cinchona, Herb Verde, and Spiced Rhubarb... mix with soda or tonic over ice. Yummy! Also new on the softies list also is pure Mangosteen juice (from SE ASia) with a slight lychee character, and we're also now stocking a few Folkington's juices/soft drinks.
  • WE TAKE BOTH CASH AND CARD PAYMENTS: We love cash! The world has gone mad refusing this as tender in so many shops but we need to keep cash in circulation. As an independent retailer it doesn't cost us money to take a cash payment but it does for a card transaction... Of course we're happy to take card payments as usual, apart from American Express. Just letting you know!
  • LARGE BOOKINGS We take a maximum table of 6 people on Friday and Saturday evenings (except at Christmas). On weekdays we can take up to 14 people booked in advance, for which we offer a limited menu to choose from on the day, while larger parties of up to 30 may be considered on certain weekdays with a pre-order two weeks in advance. We take a non-refundable deposit of £10pp for groups of 6+ people. Faced with the ever increasing number of 'no-shows', any bookings that don't turn up or reduce numbers without 24hrs notice will be charged for unfortunately. Food that has been pre-orderd will be chargeable in full. Please always advise us of any dietary requirements, and we will do our best to accommodate them.

Watch this space... we're thinking of starting some live music nights again, likely midweek on a wednesday. Let us know if you'd be interested! Don't forget we're open Mon - Sat for lunch and dinner, and if the sun shows it's face you're welcome to wrap up and sit in the garden !
