Wine List

Time and wine are both fragments in the fabric of life; nostalgic reminisces, celebration or just the good company of friends or colleagues. As each movement of the second hand brings with it a new time so too each page of this wine list brings a new range of wines for you to consider.

Each section has been carefully prepared to offer a simple snapshot of what is available to complement your mood, your food, your environment but primarily to enhance the moment.

Whilst the wine list is updated regularly, from time to time it may be necessary for our suppliers to offer alternative vintages as certain wines become unavailable. Given time any particular wines can be outsourced upon request.

Please note corkage is charged at £25.00 per bottle. Corkage is not simply the opening of your wine; we pride ourselves on offering you supreme glassware and professional service of your preferred wine.

Wine By the Glass

Gaze outside at the grounds in winter or autumn with a robust glass of red wine or enjoy a refreshing glass of cool white wine in spring or summer out on the terrace, but see if you can find our poet and perhaps feel more at home for a while?

“The kiss of the sun for pardon
The song of the birds for mirth
One is nearer God’s heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.”
