Our Restaurant / Bar
Inspired by a typical cellar visit to growers in France where, after tasting, you are offered local cheeses and a hunk of pâté served with a baguette on an up-turned barrel and more wine! What more could you want.
For our version we try and source the very best products using our connections in France, the finest farm house cheeses from Philippe Olivier in Boulogne, possibly one of the best cheese shops on the Planet! Game terrines, pâtés, rillettes and saucissons from the Loire Valley; award winning hams from Dorset and organic vegetarian quiches from Devon; along with some homemade seafood pates, vegetarian mousses or houmous served with crusty bread and biscuits. With this you get the added pleasure of choosing your wine from the carefully selected range in our cellar shop to go with it paying just a small corkage charge on top of the shop price.
The full buffet is available only at lunchtime Monday-Friday 11.30am-3.30pm, booking advised.
At other times Mondays till 6pm Tuesday-Friday till 8pm we can offer a selection of our cheeses to accompany our wines. Check for availability.
The Wine Library Experience by an old hand:
“Having negotiated the infamous spiral staircase you are greeted by a vaulted cellar dominated by a huge ‘wooden bookcase’ stuffed with wines from all corners of the wine world, browse round choosing your bottle or bottles, paying shop prices plus corkage rather than the outrageous prices restaurants charge, help is on hand from the knowledgeable staff. You are taken through Western like swing doors to the neighbouring cellar where casual seating and buffet table awaits, what on first impressions seems a small buffet, you soon realise you are in the company of some serious ripe smelly cheeses, tasty, hearty game pates, hams and the best rillettes this side of the channel and fresh breads and you can go back again and again. Time seems to stand still but the bottles don’t and too soon you are negotiating the swing doors and spiral staircase into the fresh air. You know you will be back as long as you remember how to find your way!”
