Sample  Menus

The Cookhouse

Istvan leads the service team, and Kaine leads our team of chefs, all of whom welcome you to The Cookhouse Restaurant. 

Our latest a la carte menu is designed to offer something for all lovers of food. Our signature Red Poll beef remains key to our restaurant, but is complimented by an increased offering of vegetarian and vegan dishes. The brigade of chefs cook from scratch every day using fresh, seasonal ingredients. The dishes combine classic recipes alongside small interpretations that offer something a little different or new. 

For any dietary requirements or questions, please call the restaurant team on 01473 786616

In order to provide a level of service we are proud of, we kindly ask groups of ten or more to pre-order in advance, and secure bookings with a deposit of £10 per person. For larger groups please contact the events team on 01473 786618 to discuss in greater detail or email.
