SPECIALS

 

Our specials change daily, sourcing the best ingredients to fill our board full of interesting dishes, from exciting healthy plant-based dishes to indulgent blow-out treats. See our sample boards here, and look out for them around the pub to see what’s on offer each day.

LUNCH AT THE EMBANKMENT

Here you are, at last. If this last year has taught us anything, it’s that we need our friends and we miss great pubs. So raise a glass to your companions and tuck into the good stuff. More than ever we are sourcing fine British produce, from cheese to fish, alongside free-range pork & chicken and pasture-fed steak. It’s Spring, so look out for wonderful English asparagus and Cornish lamb gracing the specials board.

Wow, it’s so good to be back doing our thing - we’ve missed you as much as you’ve missed us. Welcome!
