Excitement is building ahead of Feed The 300 – a celebration of pub’s 300th birthday which is taking place throughout November. 300 guests will dine on a special menu over the course of 10 nights, featuring some of Ben’s favourite fish dishes from his 3 decades in cooking.
If you would like to book please call us soon, as spaces are filling up fast! The three course menu is available at a specially discounted price of £28pp.
Below is a sample menu of what our guests can expect – please note that dishes may change due to seasonal availability.
Our wine merchant, Charles at Ellis Wharton Wines, has come up with some inspired wine matches for Ben’s dishes (NB these might be revised if the dishes change substantially).
