To-door delivery

In order to help everyone in this challenging environment, we are offering a to-your-door delivery service of delicious food prepared by Mark in our restaurant kitchens, for you to eat at home.

Dishes are individually priced, or you can have 2 courses for £15, or 3 courses for a bargain £18.50 - that's probably cheaper than your Chinese takeaway from those other Delivery people!

The food will keep in the refrigerator for up to four days, and is also freezable. Instructions are provided with your order.

You can also add a bottle of wine to your order. See below for this week's selection.

To change things slightly we are adding an optional cheese course to the below menu for an additional £6 per person if you wish!
