A Note on our Menus

All of our menus are prepared in-house by our in-house chef team! Everything is baked and made fresh from our bread, cakes, cookies and desserts and we pickle, cure, roast and toast the finest ingredients from Sheffield and Yorkshire. 

We work 100% seasonally so sometimes we will need to change ingredients out for what is best and fresh - we’ll let you know if we need to tweak your chosen menu ahead of your event. We can cater for all dietary requirements - just let us know and we’ll make it happen! 

We’ve carefully curated a delicious wine, beer and cocktail line up that matches our menus and makes life super easy for you. Our drinks are beautifully chosen from boutique merchants and specialists doing great stuff in small batches. Below you'll find our Festive Punch Bowls and indulgent Christmas Cocktail specials!

Simply pre-order with us when you confirm your final numbers.
