Eating here is delicious, relaxed and as healthy as you want.  Fish is from local boats and wonderfully fresh and we source our meat with great care.  Our wine list is strong on English whites and fizz, we have more than anywhere else in the world.

We welcome everyone above the age of 10.

Fish and seafood don’t have far to travel, obviously. We know the fishermen who catch the fish we cook. They are minutes away and their catch is always exceptionally fresh.

Romney Marsh is on our doorstep, so we use its distinctive, fine-flavoured salt marsh lamb. The other meat we cook comes from a single family-owned butcher. We’ve known them for years. They supply some of the best restaurants in London.




There are more English wines to choose from here than anywhere else in the world. And so there should be – we are in the heart of English wine country. Many of our spirits are English too, we never fall back on the obvious choice. Where’s the fun in that?
