Monday evening

We're closed on Mondays, so we can all get some much needed rest and prepare for the rest of the week!

Tuesday - Thursday evening

Our prix fixe mid week menu, at £21 for 2 courses and £24 for 3 courses is designed by our chefs to be exceptional value for money, especially in these economically challenged times!! It is peppered with a la carte option (for small supplements) if you fancy something even more special

Wednesday evening
Steak night

top steak and wine combos available to share: 2 dry aged fillet steaks, sautéed green beans, oven roasted cherry tomatoes, Cognac and peppercorn sauce and chips with a belter of a southern French old vine Carignan for £54. We also have deals on dry aged ribeye steaks, or try the 'Texas Chop' 900g of prime ribeye, cooked on the bone, for 2 to share or even a huge t bone to have all to yourself? We also have offers on premium wines that really do your steaks proud - a Bourbon cask conditioned Malbec or a chunky Primitivo, for example.

Thursday evening

Seafood this evening; how about a dozen Colchester oysters with vodka gazpacho or our signature monkfish and chips (to die for!)? Lots of seafood to choose from, in addition to the prix fixe menu and  all fresh on the day.
