Wine List

Welcome to our drinks menu.

We start by offering our wines available by the glass and our carefully selected house wines, champagnes and sparkling wines. The full list of white & red wines then follows.

You’ll find a great selection of wines to suit all palates & pockets. There are some good examples of classic styles, together with some interesting new ones too.

We hope that you will experience genuine pleasure from the wines we have chosen. However, on tasting if you find you don’t like the wine, then please choose another. We’d rather replace the wine than for you to drink a wine with your meal that you dislike.

If you like our approach to wine, then you may be interested in our wine weekends which include tutored tastings, or our themed evenings which include matching foods and wines around a particular theme.

Please contact us for more information.

Cheers.

Alison & Andi Sambrook
