Country and Town House

Join us for lunch....

Lunch can be as fleeting or as laboured a visit as you like. The menus suit all from the walker seeking refuelling to the serious luncher looking to settle in for a benevolently priced fixed price menu with a carafe of wine or two.

The Gurnard's Head supper menu is short, seasonal and delicious.

All food is cooked to order and the menu will change a little every day depending on what the suppliers bring them.
