EXPRESSING OUR SENSE OF PLACE
The food menu of EAT draws from the wealth of product from our local farmland, nearby fisheries, and organic vegetables growers.
In writing our menu we have sought out the best primary local ingredients, from meat to fish to vegetables in order that you can experience your landscape through our food. Our food philosophy demonstrates a commitment to good food presented in the warm and friendly setting of a gastro pub. While we change our menu often, do take heed of our seasonal special which we write on our blackboard daily.
