Having worked at some of the country’s top restaurants, including St John and the Hand & Flowers, Matt has now returned to the countryside that he grew up in, to open up his first solo venture.  With a passion for British food, you’ll only find seasonal and local dishes on the menu, which changes daily – as often as Matt’s mood in fact.  And as much as possible, he tries to source produce from within the Hundred itself.  You’ll find a recent sample menu below to tickle your taste buds!  

For groups of 8 or more we offer a banqueting style of dining - meaning you choose 1,2, or 3 dishes from each course and we serve each dish on large platters brought to the table to encourage interaction and sharing. Matt can also offer a bespoke banqueting menu, especially tailored around our guests' tastes.
