You will have (amongst other things) the following to choose from:

Table Platters come as a starter and include artisan wild yeast croutes with mushroom & lemon thyme pate and chicken liver pate with sherry jelly.

Mains, shaved sirloin with confit garlic jus, chicken, bacon & leek lasagna, Shephard`s pie and roast vegetables. For dessert there’s Malva pudding with vanilla crème anglaise or chocolate brownie with Chantilly cream as well as fruit skewers with lemon verbena syrup.

April 25, 2018

"I will look after you and I will look after anybody you say needs to be looked after, any way you say. I am here. I brought my whole self to you. I am your mother."

Maya Angelou, Mom & Me & Mom

A little oasis in the bustle that is Claremont, it is hard to believe that the world continues outside while you are enjoying the tranquility and timelessness of the venue. It is an eco-award winning riverside estate, beautiful. 

On the sweet side you can order homemade buttermilk scone with farm style strawberry jam and whipped cream or baked red velvet cheesecake squares, also amazing are the mini salted caramel brownie bars. 

If savoury is your thing, choose either the traditional baked brioche with basil pesto, tomatoes and goat’s milk feta or the petit vegetarian quiche.
