We work directly with family farmers and butchers to source the very best dry-aged, rare breed meat. This, by definition is only available in short supply. Each day we offer a limited amount of Specials in addition to our menu. Our Specials are the result of daily deliveries and only taking the best of what’s available. These do sell out, often very quickly. We recognise this can cause disappointment for which we apologise.
