An evening meal might offer some panko-breaded calamari followed by a modern take on duck a l’orange. The lunch menu features a selection of favourites, such as curry or lasagne, while Sunday brings interesting fish and vegetarian options as well as the classic roast. Come and see what we have to offer.
