Start with a Starter…

We’ve had a few requests from those missing our starter boards. We always wrote the menu for our starters on the day as they would be designed around what we had available to use, what could be picked from the garden and how much sourdough Mum had made the night before.

Well, here they are! We are now adding Starter Boxes to our menu; enjoy a shared bite before your Sunday lunch or pop it in the fridge and your Monday lunch is sorted…

This weeks box contains a pot of caramelised onion Houmous topped with red onion marmalade, home grown pea shoots and a wedge of homemade Sourdough. Each box is £7.50, please note our minimum order is £14.

Now for the main course…

Local roast chicken with home made stuffing or Homity Pie (deep filled pie with leeks, spinach, potato and mature cheddar in a wholemeal pastry) (vegan option available). Each served with roasties, seasonal vegetables and gravy.

Dessert is a choice of chocolate & hazelnut Torte, caramel apple upside down cake (both served with Northiam Dairy double cream) or a vegan chocolate Brownie with cherry compote and soya cream.

To order please email or phone (01424) 431 305

Offering Some Comfort In Lockdown…

Firstly, a big thanks to all that ordered from us last Sunday and endured a long wait whilst we battled through our first ever home delivery service. We learnt a lot and can now begin to work on making our systems quicker and easier to get the meals to you within a designated time frame. Thanks for your patience…

These are hard times, most are anxious as we travel through times of total unknown but we are here, as long as we can continue to get supplies, to deliver some comforting home cooked food (and wine!) to your door.

This week we have local roast pork with stuffing and local apple sauce, we also have Homity Pie (v) and some hand made vegan sausages. Each come with roasties, seasonal vegetables and gravy. Dessert is a choice of white chocolate cheesecake or a fruit crumble (ve).

To place your order please either phone us on (01424) 431 305 or email

We have, so far, been unable to set up phone payments as our provider is working with a reduced team of staff so contactless payment remains to be by Paypal or BACS.

Delivering virtual hugs…and roasts

Its a very worrying time for many in so many ways, we’re with you. During this period, we are self isolating to protect those more vulnerable around us but we are also doing our best to provide what we can to the surrounding community.

We are continuing to offer our home cooked Sunday lunch!

And we’ll bring it to your door!
