As well as giving the boozer a stunning new homely yet modern look, including a stained-glass back bar, wrought-iron staircase and mosaic floor, James Knappett of two-Michelin-star Kitchen Table is overseeing the food menu as Culinary Director, with Alex Harper (previously of The Harwood Arms and The Ledbury) as Executive Chef. The pair have worked together to create a modern pub menu that focuses on simply prepared, local produce with an underlying nostalgic theme throughout.
The menu includes the likes of crispy Cornish lamb ribs; garlic chicken kiev with shaved fennel salad, strawberry sherry trifle. And drinks-wise, the pub serves beers and cask and craft ales alongside an extensive wine list and modern cocktails, like on-tap Nitro Espresso Martinis and Blackcurrant Negronis.
