Food is at the heart of our culture- what we eat, how it is grown, made and served.
Our values shape our menu decisions- environmentally positive, sustainable and delicious food you want to eat!

Nick Cottrell, our Head Chef patron, devises food options for all our guests, with the seasons and locality inspiring his menus, not to mention the kitchen garden- and our chickens and ducks!
Nick has been around food for most his life, starting with the family at another Ship Inn in Somerset. He went on to become an award winning chef, achieving many accolades since the age of 20, across the West Country. Since 2016 he has worked in London as Head Chef at The Shard, 2 Rosettes, and previously at The Savoy and Simpson’s on the Strand.
A 'field to fork' Chef, who also trained in agriculture, with recognised creative flare.
