£29 per head

A 4-course set meal Inspired by produce grown by one of our favourite local Dorset smallholders. Ingredients are hand delivered to Head Chef Andy Hilton to turn into a supper fit for a king. Guests are seated at long tables of 12 so the atmosphere’s relaxed, cheerful and stimulating. Eat incredible food, support local.

This month’s producer: Fluffets Farm, New Forest

What could be simpler, healthier or more delicious than the best and freshest from the local quays, perfectly grilled – especially when we are surrounded by some of the finest fishing on the planet!
