Menu

We work closely with local businesses to source the majority of our ingredients locally and we make a conscious effort to source sustainably. We are excited to share that
95% of our menu does not contain gluten ingredients and we pride ourselves in providing a fresh food menu that caters to everyone. We are now serving healthy smoothies and alcohol-free options!

Daily A La Carte Specials will also served. (As we will have a daily blackboard menu.) We serve a traditional Sunday lunch on Sundays serving a choice of 2 meats and a vegan/vegetarian option.
