The menu changes frequently, depending on what is in season and available. They feature various dishes, including chicken and duck. The lamb, pork and beef is sourced from throughout the Yorkshire region, sourced by their trusted butcher, Rob Breckon, in Whitby.

Taylor’s of Pickering provides fruit and vegetables and during the summer, they also source soft fruits and salads from local growers in Yorkshire. Dales Dairy supplies Yorkshire milk and cream. And, of course, they use the award-winning Yorkshire cheese from Shepherd’s Purse!
