NUT ALLERGIES: we regret we are not able to accommodate serious and/or life-threatening nut allergies as we cannot guarantee the provenance of every item of food that comes into our kitchen.
For coeliacs or similar, we offer gluten-free bread (and toast) and can happily substitute chickpea flour for wheat in deep-fried dishes. We can also offer alternative desserts to those that include pastry.
For those with a dairy intolerance, we always have soya milk, spread, yoghurt and ice cream available.
We will happily offer guidance through our normal a la carte for guests who wish to avoid a particular ingredient because of intolerance or simple dislike!
We are delighted to offer a separate menu for committed vegetarians who never eat meat and fish. We can also care for vegans with a separate menu. In both instances it helps us offer you a more interesting choice – especially at Sunday lunch – if you mention this at the time of booking. (Four exceptions are Christmas Day lunch, Boxing Day brunch, New Year’s Eve dinner and New Year’s Day brunch when the advertised menu is the only one available.)
For fish-eating ‘vegetarians’, please be assured that our normal a la carte offers a good choice of non-meat dishes. We are also very happy to cook any ingredient plainly if the a la carte seems a bit too challenging.
