Dinner Menu – Seasonal, local and ethical British food

These are just a few seasonal ideas of what could be on our “Three Counties” dinner menu in 2016. Lower Buckton We don’t offer a choice at each course however we always ask for our guests’ food likes, loves, hates and any dietary requirements all of which we’re more than happy to cater.  At present we are unlicensed so you are welcome to bring whatever wines/beers/spirits you like and we will prepare and serve them for you.  There is no corkage charge.
