Take a look



One of the things we’re dead keen on, is to bring in many more local suppliers of food. We want to offer seasonal dishes with local Surrey ingredients to show off the quality and flavour that’s right on our doorstep.Using incredible Surrey produce, meat and fish are prepared on site every day, and paired with ingredients so good they really speak for themselves.
