The menu even features a great 'hand held' selection of bites, which are perfect for enjoying at the bar. Choose from topped nachos with cheese sauce, salsa, sour cream and jalapenos, or a sausage roll in puff pastry. Maybe you'd prefer a classic 3 oz burger, in a brioche style bun with hot cheese, crispy onions and burger sauce, or adventure out a little with a chicken balti pie. The pizza menu features 12” authentic tomato based pizzas with melted cheese and your favourite toppings. Choose from the simple classic of a margherita, the spicy beef with jalapenos, red onion and diced tomatoes, a perfect pepperoni, chargrilled BBQ chicken, or veggie delight with mixed peppers, mushrooms, diced tomato and red onion.
