The essence of our menus is buried deep in our passion for good food. As a country pub we strive to offer simple hearty rural dishes. Sticking to uncomplicated cooking processes and developing a relaxed and informal approach to our menus allows the quality of our ingredients to shine through.

With a little of something for everyone; a four course dinner, a sandwich in the bar, a salad on the patio or a meal with the kids after school - nothing is too much effort for our crew in the kitchens. Our Head Chef prides himself on his ability to be flexible and his crew's determination to produce only the best. Our menus are jammed packed with local produce and the surrounding Holifield Estate produces a rich selection of game including venison from the woods behind the Compasses along with Pheasant and Partridge from the shoot.
