Vanessa & Ben have worked with the world's best, leading teams at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, The Square, The French Laundry and Gordon Ramsay Holdings.

We understand that while food is essential, restaurants and bakeries are not, therefore, we are joyfully driven to exceed our guests’ expectations daily. We value the bounty, as well as the people, on our doorstep and relish being a place for guests from near or far to gather in a relaxed setting for anything from a coffee to a tasting menu. Moreso now than ever, dining out is a real luxury and we delight in seeing the faces of guests who become regulars, and regulars who become friends. Without this support, we could not continue.
