As you’d expect our menu’s change with the season and indeed are influenced by what is available at market in any given week, so please bear in mind that this will have an influence on the actual menu available on the day of your event.

We would also be happy to  offer a tailored Premium Menu offering a selection of more indulgent dishes (prices will vary)  and a Lunch version of our menu if so required. A standard Lunch Group Set Menu would cost 30 euro per person and would be served between 1pm and 3pm on Saturday & Sunday (Or by prior arrangement)
