The right ingredients.
With our combined credentials, experience and flair, we strongly believe that we have the right blend of ingredients to fulfil our vision – which put quite simply, is to provide good quality, fresh and imaginative food in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Both trained chefs, we are passionate about food and wine and have gone to great lengths to source good quality produce from the region and select highly drinkable and good value wines. We are also particular about our coffee and we sampled several coffee beans before making our choice.

Karen was Head Chef at the Crown Hotel in Wells (where she caught the eye of Bob – or was it the goats cheese speciality (Goat’s cheese in honey and mustard) that was the attraction!) Karen established her training ground in the kitchens of highly reputable establishments such as the Hoste Arms in Burnham Market, Norfolk and the Crown and Swan Hotels in Southwold, Suffolk.
Bob Foyers, Owner and Front of House Manager.
