Please see below for this week's MJP@Home menu.

Don't forget that you can add a box of 6 handmade chocolates by Louis Beckett - Mark's old pastry chef from Alimentum. By ordering his chocolates with a meal from us you are not only helping 1 local business but 2!

Early bookings are going quickly for our re-opening after lockdown. We've used the time wisely, and you'll find a number of little changes and improvements in both our dining room, and our rooms. We've also been busy in the garden, building raised beds to grow our own produce straight from the plant to your plate!

We hope to hear from you soon!

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.

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