Being close to the sea and surrounded by woodlands, fields and a vast marsh, it feels natural to source most of our ingredients from the fishermen, farmers, and hunters of East Sussex and Kent.
Depending on the season – and the weather – it may be Dover Sole, Scallops, Squid and the odd Gurnard (the latter being the fish that has lent its tail to our sign and the front page of this site).
The lamb on our menu eats the slightly salty grass of the Romney Marsh, which gives the meat an unique flavour. Our game, which may be rabbit, partridge, pigeon or mallard, have roamed the woodlands and fields in the area. "Our own" forager brings us wild goodies in the form of wild garlic, wild spinach and other edible, wild herbs, as well as a variety of mushrooms. And in our own garden, rhubarb, chives, thyme and other herbs are growing.
We also use vegetables, free range eggs, milk and cream from local farms. As well as offering a selection of local spring water, apple juice, lager, cider and ale.
