Wines

 

Dear Customers,

Our wine philosophy is straightforward. In terms of style, we look for wines of balance, wines that are true to type (representative of their origins), and wines that will complement our style of food.

Our aim is to offer excellent value at each price point. To help select our wines, we work closely with our wine suppliers.

We are proud to work with small, quality-focused wine producers. In our opinion, not only do smaller producers inevitably offer a superior combination of quality and value for money, many of those that appear in our list are benchmark producers for their region.

We have taken much pleasure in creating our wine list and we have a number of wines which we regard as hidden gems, such as our “Wine by the Glass”. We are lucky to be able to offer the “CANTINE LAVORATA” range from Italy, one of our favourite producers. We do hope that you enjoy our selection and welcome your comments and feedback.
