Welcoming the sunshine with a new summer menu and a bit of fizz

Greek Salad

It's been a long, long winter (did spring even get a look in?) but, touch wood, summer is finally here and it looks like the weather is cooperating with us this year. To celebrate its welcome arrival we are launching our brand new Summer Menu, packed full of fresh, seasonal, lighter food for you to enjoy – whatever the weather!

Our new Charcuterie Board featuring a selection of home smoked and cured meat, pickles, chutneys and bread joins our popular Mezze Board, which proved such a hit when we introduced it in spring we’ve kept it on for summer. These Boards are perfect for sharing, particularly in the longer summer evenings, and with £5 off a bottle of Campo Flores with either, it's a great package.

New dishes on the light bites menu include tasty Charred Asparagus Spears with sour cream and baby leaf salad and Cornish Coley, Dill and Chive Fishcakes, while on the main menu try one of two signature Mediterranean dishes - a classic Greek Salad full of crunchy vegetables tossed in herby vinaigrette and a great Lamb Moussaka: a half roasted aubergine stuffed with lamb and layered with parmesan and tangy feta.

For those looking for a bit of a BBQ flavour without all that fussing about with charcoal, try our new chargrilled chicken burger, and for fish fans we'll be serving our fresh catch of the day from our fab suppliers Wing of St Mawes with polenta mash and sauce vierge.

Executive Chef Oliver said:

"Our locally sourced, seasonal Summer Menu includes some of the signature tastes of summer we all know and love, from vegetables to meaty mains, baguettes to fresh fish and generous sharing boards. Our specials board will feature light salads alongside our pasta and risotto specials, so make sure you keep a look out for what we've cooked up on the day."

If you're not sure which of our great drinks to try with your meal, Oliver has matched some of our favourite wines and lagers to a few of the Summer Menu dishes to make your selection a little bit easier.

Finally, on Fridays why not indulge yourself at our brand new Fizz Fridays from 17:00, where you can enjoy two glasses of chilled Prosecco for just £7 or throw caution to the wind and get the whole bottle for £20. We've also been terribly hard at work taste testing our first range of Kir Royale cocktails, and are delighted to offer you a choice from Elderflower, Crème de Cassis or Rhubarb liqueur.

Don't forget to keep an eye on our Offers page, where you can grab a bargain with more of our regular promotions.
