Fish and seafood don’t have far to travel.

We know the fishermen who catch the fish we cook.

The same with our lamb, from the salt marshes that surround us.

Our local fruit and vegetables often come direct from the farmer.

And anything foraged from the local hedgerow, foreshore and wood.


‘Unfussy and extremely satisfying cooking.  The food is so good you may not make it to the beach.’  Jay Rayner, The Guardian Feb 2020

We welcome everyone over 10.






Our menus change with the seasons, with ingredients from Britain and very locally sourced when possible.  We cook quite a bit over an open wood fire and nearly always have whole fish to share which is a fantastic thing.

On weekdays our Weekly Market menu is a 3 course set menu that sits alongside our a la carte. It changes weekly depending on what comes into the kitchen.

On Sunday we offer more of a sharing style menu with a traditional roast at it’s heart.  Again, this changes weekly.


We have the most English wines to choose from here in the UK. And so we should – 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?


Become a friend of ours and we’ll let you know about new ways to enjoy more of The Gallivant for less.



We are very excited to invite you to be one of the first to try one of the menus from our new Head Chef, Jamie Guy, and his team.

At lunch alongside the full menu we also have our Weekly Market lunch which is a shorter three course menu that focuses on local ingredients that are at their absolute best, all for a very reasonable £20, served Monday to Friday.

We would really welcome your feedback.
