we really want you to enjoy our wines - and therefore the list has been compiled (after exhaustive tastings!) to select a range of wines from around the world. each wine, we believe, will offer quality and pleasure whether you are in the bar, restaurant or on the terrace. people are very often surprised to learn that we offer a selection of 16 wines, including champagnes, by the glass and also have a lengthy list of half bottles.
there is ample opportunity to savour different styles offered by white wine grape varieties such as viognier, chenin, verdicchio and pinot grigio, which are a refreshing diversion to the ever popular chardonnay and sauvignon.
for the red wines, there is life after cabernet, and the svelte styles offered by pinot noir contrast to the rich pepper and spice of the syrah or shiraz, which are great partners to strong red meats and game dishes.
in 2008, after much banging-on, I finally realised my dream of having the ultimate boy's toy - the walk-in wine cellar - now home to our much cherished wine, champagne and cognac collections.
there is also a mouth-watering array of excellent champagnes, both vintage and non-vintage, as well as fine vintage red and white wines, which are offered at great value!
if there is something that catches your eye prior to your visit, please feel free to contact us to decant before your arrival, if appropriate. please note that the list is updated quicker than i can upload these updates, so wines, vintages and prices may vary on our actual list. please do contact us if there is a specific wine you are after. you will find some fantastic sketches that i commissioned specifically for the list from our friend tim bulmer (www.timbulmerartist.com). if one of the cartoons catches your eye, give us a shout as we can organise a print for you. happy hunting!
