As the seasons turn, so too does our menu.
June marks the start of summer, which is the season of bright blue skies and soaring temperatures, strawberries and cream, roses and peonies, the athletics and Wimbledon, garden BBQ’s and al fresco dining.
Our ethos has always been to use fresh produce, seasonal ingredients and local influences wherever possible and we are proud to work closely with numerous local breweries, distilleries, farmers, growers and suppliers to ensure our food and drink represents the very best that our local land has to offer.
Our summer menu launch
The new summer menu consists of some real gems, like the roasted beetroot and goat’s cheese salad and the vegetarian sharing platter of crispy fried halloumi, balsamic-roasted beetroot, roasted red peppers, grilled aubergines, cucumber, feta-stuffed mini jacket potatoes, houmous, garlic alioli and garlic-toasted ciabatta. Refresh your palette with our lemon cheesecake served with a mixed berry compote or indulge further with local cheeses.
We are often asked what we’d recommend on the menu and why, so as we launch the new summer menu we’ve asked the team these very questions!
“I love cheese. In a perfect world, I would have a cheese board as my main course. All four; Norbury Blue, Tunworth, Cornish Yarg and Ragstone.”
Alex, Pub Manager
“Steak, always steak! Our hand-selected Hampshire sirloin is well worth the little extra and you can really taste the difference. I’d pair this with a glass of Bone Orchards Argentian Malbec every time.”
“The classic favourite – a prime British beef burger. Because it hits the right buttons, juicy beef, all the toppings and dipping chips in mayo. I’d have to finish it off with the warm chocolate brownie with mint chocolate ice cream to incite a proper food-coma….yum!”
Kaitlyn, Assistant Manager
“Pan-fried sea bass. I love it simply for the avocado, tomato and caper salsa. It is dynamite! A well balanced and light dish, which always goes down well with a chilled glass of Pinot Grigio.”
Alexandra, Commis Chef
“A whole baked Camembert infused with garlic and rosemary, as main. Because cheese is all you need in life!”
Make the most of the British summertime before it disappears for another year and come and enjoy our new summer menu; we’d love to hear what your favourite dish on the menu is!
