We have recently updated our food and drink menu to include some new delicious dishes and treats that we are sure you’ll love, including Aubergine and Chickpea Tagine, Served with an Almond and Sage Couscous, and Smoked Duck, Mango and Pistachio Salad. We have also now separated out our milkshakes and smoothies so we can list the flavours.
We have updated our main menu slightly for Mother’s Day this year to make sure the day runs as smoothly as possible! You can view the Mother’s Day version of our menu here. This will only be in effect on 31st March 2019, so our regular menu will be available as normal on all other days!
Don’t forget to enter our fantastic Mother’s Day competition that we’re running with Taylors of Bruton Bakery and be in with a chance of winning a luxury afternoon tea for you and your mum (or nominated friend!). Find details and how to enter on our Facebook page here.
We understand that it’s easy to forget the most important meal of the day when you’re busy in the mornings, but have you considered grabbing breakfast on the go? We have a delicious breakfast menu selection, including Eggs Benedict, Eggs Royale, a Full English Breakfast for the particularly ravenous, and an option to build your own bap! What better way to start the day?

This Banana Muffin recipe is the ideal bake if you have a few bananas that are just over ripe and you don’t fancy eating them as they are. We are all about not wasting food!

Preheat oven to 175 degrees and prepare your muffin tin with muffin cases. In a large bowl, add bananas, eggs, almond butter, coconut oil and vanilla extract, and mix using an electric hand whisk. Add the coconut flour, cinnamon, (nutmeg), baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt and blend the entire mixture thoroughly.
