Each day, before midday we upload the day's menus, it's always nice to whet your appetite before you even get to us. We also add in more detail about each dish in case you need to check out the ingredients for allergen information.
Sample Wine Menu
When we're a little closer to opening, we will be putting together our opening wine list. In the meantime, below you'll find the lovingly-chosen wine list from our sister pubs, The Roe Deer in Wordsley.
Hopefully you'll find something that suits, at a price that fits. Wines available by the glass will be sold in 125ml measure. Larger sizes of 175ml and 250ml will also be available and are priced accordingly.
£17.45£3.201. Crusan Colombard, Sauvignon Blanc - FranceFresh but succulent, this is a juicy little quaffer with a soft attack, late fruit and a clean finish.
Crisp and dry
£25.45 2. Picpoul de Pinet, Jean Luc Colombo, Les Girelles - FranceBone-dry and mineralic with great texture. If you enjoy a crisp Sauvignon, this should float your boat.
£18.95£3.453. Sauvignon Blanc, Tierra - ChileThis is herbaceous in style with a distinct nettly, grassy aroma, much like my lawn.
£20.75 4. Sauvignon Blanc, Domaine de Vedilhan - FrancePiercing gooseberry aromas, reminiscent of ripe cool climate Sauvignon, coupled with crushed limes on the palate make Vedilhan really crisp and refreshing.
£19.45£3.555. Pinot Grigio, Marchesini - ItalyThis is a playful little bunny girl, which nevertheless has a good bone structure and an appealing finish. Nutty, crispy, toasty, tasty.
£33.75 6. Sancerre, Les Colinettes, Joseph Mellot - FranceWhen it comes to pedigree, Sancerre is an aristocrat of a wine, and this one certainly deserves its ennoblement. You'll find a classic lick of gooseberry with hints of honey and grapefruit.
Dry and aromatic
£20.75 7. Torrentes, Etchart Privado - ArgentinaJuicy and fragrant. If I had but £20.75 left in the world, this is what I would do with it. Then I'd put the change on an accumulator at Cheltenham so I could buy some more later.
£23.75£4.358. Sauvignon Blanc, Riverstone - New ZealandA perennial favourite demonstrating classic Kiwi Sauvignon gooseberries and nettles, with lots of elegant tropical fruit.
£26.95 9. Albariño, Castell de Raimat - SpainA peach of a wine, showing delicate aromas of citrus and dried flowers with flavours of apricots, a hint of almond and a kiss of sweet vanilla.
£19.75 10. Marsanne, Viognier, Rare Vineyards - France This is a blend of Rhône varieties which have been transplanted to the warm vineyards of southern France. Unoaked, you'll find a soft Mediterranean peachiness.
£44.95 11. Cloudy Bay, Sauvignon Blanc - New ZealandBehold the icon of New Zealand Sauvignons which still sits on its elegant throne after all these years. Okay so it's pricey, but this is exactly what £44.95 was designed for.
£29.95 12. Riesling, Bay of Fire - TasmaniaDry with a classic diesel nose, this is no oily rag. This is a brushed chrome, highly polished aromatic beauty delivered with a cheeky spark of Tasmanian madness.
Clean and rounded
£24.95 13. Gavi, 'La Luciana' Araldica - ItalyOverlook this, and you'll be the poorer for it. This is a discovery wine, from the cool foothills of Piedmont, and is dry, crisp and lemony.
£18.95£3.4514. Chenin Blanc, Kleine Zalze Bush Vines - South AfricaBags of yellow tropical fruits leap out like gazelles from the bush. One step up from dry, but it never cloys.
£34.75 15. Pouilly Fumé, Cuvée du Tronsec - FranceMassive gunflint on the nose, with a slightly citrus edge to the Sauvignon that keeps it fresh but rounded. As pure and balanced as a nun on a bicycle.
£19.95£3.6516. Chardonnay, False Bay - South AfricaGood Chardonnay flavours with pineapple overtones. This is concentrated but fresh, as a consequence of the absence of the big oak thing.
£18.25 17. Grillo, Solandia, Terre Siciliane - ItalySun-drenched vineyards of Sicily give us this modern favourite with light almond and dried peaches to the fore. How anything so delicately fragrant can be born from this heat is a wonder.
£27.95 18. Pinot Gris, Sileni Cellar Selection - New ZealandThe Alsace grape on holiday in the adventure capital of the world. Adventurous stone fruit, citrus and pear flavours. PG goes bungee jumping!
Rich and full
£42.95 19. Chablis Premier Cru, Dom de la Motte, Beauroy - France These days, too often Chablis can be mean, lean and plain unfriendly, but this is old school aromatic buttery loveliness. This is a big shaggy dog of a wine that licks you all over.
£29.95 20. Mácon Villages Domaine de la Grange Magnien, Louis Jadot, Burgundy - FranceIconic white Burgundy from the traditional home of Chardonnay. Dry, crisp, minerally fruit, fantastic length. Gallic Chardonnay for people who think they don't like Chardonnay.
£26.95 21. La Ciboise Luberon Banc, M.Chapoutier - FranceThis organic white walks barefoot in the mountains of Luberon with flowers in its hair. White blossom, lemon and exotic fruit skip hand-in-hand with a fresh, round finish.
£28.95 22. Tenuta del Porconero Fiano, Paestum - ItalyLovingly produced in harmony with the lunar cycle, it has clean, rich flavours of hazelnut, green apple, pears, jasmine and broom. Get in touch with your spiritual side, man.
£29.95 23. Sepp Gruner Veltliner - AustriaThe indigenous Austrian grape Gruner Veltliner is given the organic treatment by the legendary Nikolaus, son of Sepp. Grapefruit with a hint of spice and edelweiss.
£24.95£5.2524. Prosecco, Galanti - ItalyA fine, persistent, soft fizz surrounds the typical fruit spectrum of apple and pear with a hint of peach. Breakfast for the brave.
£24.95£5.2525. Pinot Grigio Rosé, Spumante Mirabello - ItalyLet's face it, it doesn't get much more fun than pink bubbles. Time to unfasten your top button and let your hair down.
£39.95£6.9526. Chapel Down, Brut Vintage Reserve - EnglandOne of England's best selling sparkling wines and a great example of a classic English fizz. A crisp, dry sparkling wine, perfect for celebrations and events.
£49.95 27. Champagne, Perrier Jouet Grand Brut NV - France Push the boat out with this Grande Marque, well known for its friendly and open style. Perrier Jouet have been making Champagne since 1811, and they've pretty much nailed it by now.

Smooth and earthy
£26.95£4.5029. Rioja Crianza, Don Jacobo - SpainEasy in the mouth, this is warm and friendly, all a classic Rioja should be. If God had access to wine, I like to think this would be to his taste. It speaks with a rich, dark, but soft voice.
£21.45 30. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Malbec, Flagstone Longitude - South AfricaSouth African blends have become renowned of late. This one unusually combines influences from Bordeaux and Rhône, but with a South African twist. Creative stuff.
£19.95 31. Carmenère, Emiliana - ChilePacked with strawberry, cherry and black pepper aromas, the smoky coffee notes from the French oak also add intensity on the palate. The only thing better than a glass of Emiliana, is two glasses of Emiliana.
£29.95 32. Bordeaux, Les Hipsters Barbe, Côtes du Bourg - FranceThe wine glides into town on a "fixie" with a devil-may-care assurance of spicy, plummy fruit. It knows it's cool!
Warm and spicy
£19.95£3.6533. Shiraz, Berri Estate - South-Eastern AustraliaOld school Aussie Shiraz with bags of chocolatey, blackcurrant fruit, peppery spice and a permanent suntan.
£19.95 34. Shiraz, Percheron - South Africa'Percheron' is a breed of French heavy horse used by early settlers. This Shiraz blend is strong, robust and dependable, like its namesake - yet it remains surprisingly nimble on its feet.
£21.95£4.0035. Malbec Bonarda, Tesoro de los Andes, Mendoza - Argentina In France, Malbec has a body designed for the scrummage, but in Argentina it is a tango-dancer. Blended with Bonarda, an ancient Merlot-esque grape: this is beautifully balanced.
£34.45 36. Gigondas, Domaine La Haute Marone - FranceThis is a heavy, top-end wine from the southern Rhone. Its weight and warm spice comes primarily from hand picked Grenache grapes, with a refinement from a good lick of the elegant Syrah. Excellent with any game, or other similarly robust flavours.
£34.95 37. Cabernet Sauvignon, Nederburg 'The Brewmaster' - South AfricaSerious kit. A tribute to Johann Graue, the famous 'Brewmaster' of the Western Cape. Claret with a blast of South African sunshine. Big, warm, restrained and respectful - a gentle giant.
Rich and plummy
£24.95 38. Côtes du Rhône Villages, 'Les Coteaux'- France This has weight, fruit and power, with immense smoothness and harmony. In choral terms, Boutinot's 'Les Coteaux' is the Audley Male Voice Choir.
£25.95£4.7539. Passori Rosso, Veneto - Italy Passori is an anagram of 'Ripasso', a style of wine renowned for its rich, dark-baked Christmas cake flavours and aromas of sun-dried raisins. Amarone for the people.
£35.95 40. St Emilion Grand Cru, Château des Bardes - FranceThis is a velvet glove encasing a wine of smooth restrained power. Big, rich, warm and soft, with notes of nutmeg and cinnamon to spice things up. Classic Merlot-led claret.
Elegant and less weighty
£21.95£4.0041. Pinot Noir, Rare Vineyards - FranceIf wine were footwear, this would be a light summer deck shoe. In the glass, this Pinot Noir is warm and loving with a good level of fruit that's had sun on its back. Red cherries spring to mind.
£18.95£3.4542. Merlot, Casa Vista - ChileDeep purple in colour, this wine has lots of fruity aromas while ripe plum and damson fruit flavours combine on the palate for a smooth, gently spiced finish.
£31.45 43. Fleurie, Chateau de Fleurie Loron - FranceYou'll find ripe and savoury strawberry, cherry and raspberry fruit, which stays clean and supple throughout. This is a welcome relief from those shouty New World fruit-bombs, jumping up and down, waving their arms about and generally showing off.
£22.75 44. Honoro Vera Organic Monastrell - SpainMid Spain, big sun, huge fruit. This is a Flamenco dancer's lunchtime tipple! Taste the sunshine.
£29.45 45. Borie de Maurel Espirit d'Automne Minervois - FranceThis classic country wine rides into town on its bicycle with a string of onions round its neck. It is rustic, earthy and sun-kissed with a deep purple nose and bags of Gallic charm. Pass the baguette.
£20.75£3.8046. Pinot Grigio Rosé, Ancora - ItalyLightly tinted Pinot Grigio (which is a pink grape itself, don't you know), with a touch of Pinot Noir to add depth. And it does.
£20.75£3.8047. White Zinfandel, Vendange - CaliforniaStrawberries and cream in a glass.
£19.95£3.6548. Kleine Zalze Gamay Noir Rosé, South Africa This wine is, if you will, a halfway house between the strawberries and cream approach and more serious wines. It's very good at what it does, but it remains chilled out while it's doing it.
£24.95£2.9549. Sauternes, Ginestet Classique - France 50ml Glass or 50cl BtlThis wine blew our pants off - there's loads going on with flavours of almond, peach and orange and is intense, complex and long. That's botrytis (noble rot) for you.
