Located in both the garden of England & on the British coastline, we have access to a fantastic supply of local fresh ingredients which is showcased in our seasonally changing menus.
Simon, Craig and our team work closely with our local suppliers to create our menus. By using Kent based fishermen all fish & shellfish are usually landed and on your plate the very same day & our Canterbury based butchers ensures all of our game & meat are reared in local farms.
We work closely with our fishmonger to ensure our menu echoes the seasons & has been responsibly sourced. The majority of our menu will come straight from one of their 18 day boats which fish the waters off of Margate, Whitstable, Ramsgate, Folkestone and Broadstairs.
Our trained cocktail bartenders take pride in delivering the same high quality & care for our cocktails as the chef's do for each dish
Using premium spirits, fresh fruit & ingredients enjoy your favourite cocktail handmade to order alongside a wide selection of local Kent wines & spirits.
