Freshly made on site!

Our Scottish Head Chef Martin Black.

After serving an apprenticeship with Thistle Hotels in Aberdeen, Martin has gained 23 years’ experience in hotels and restaurants in Edinburgh, Cheshire, Jersey in the Channel Islands and the New Forest. This was followed by three years in charge of the brasserie kitchen at Luton Hoo and then working across Hertfordshire in different senior chef roles.

Martin is classically French trained and believes in using local produce and suppliers where possible. He also believes in consistently delivering modern pub food which combine fresh ingredients and bags of flavour.

Martin has added some locally sourced lamb, British steaks and cheeses to our menu so far with positive feedback on these new additions.

In his spare time you can find Martin spending it with his young family.

Please note due to current Covid-19 restrictions our kitchens last orders are at 8pm, final drinks orders are at 9.15.
