Cuisine from around the world

– Great Food | Great Location | Great Ambience –

This menu is based on food & cuisine from the 4 corners of the world…more importantly the 6 continents of the globe (Antarctica being the 7th). Many items in this menu will be very common to you, as our culture & taste in food has diversified over the years. There are many classic dishes within this menu, some favourite items with a twist & some items that you may not have tried before. The largest selection of food comes from Europe & North America as these are our major food groups here in the UK, with smaller selections in the other continents. We hope you enjoy your food adventure across the continents.

If you would prefer some of these dishes plain, without the sauces, please tell a member of staff when ordering and one of our chefs will be happy to accomodate to your taste.
