                                                                    • Cataratto Pinto Grigio, Dea del Mare, Italy

                                                                      Lovey, easy drinking wine made from Pinto Grigio, blended with the local Cataratto grape. Green apple and tropical fruit favours.

                                                                      • 125ml£3.15
                                                                      • 175ml£4.25
                                                                      • Bottle£17.00
                                                                    • Chardonnay, Deer Point, Bulgaria

                                                                      • 125ml£3.40
                                                                      • 175ml£4.75
                                                                      • Bottle£19.00
                                                                    • Airen Sauvignon Blanc, Vergel, Spain (Organic)

                                                                      Taken from their oldest, unirrigated vines, this wine is full of texture and intrigue. Subtle herbaceous notes with hints of pineapple and lemon.

                                                                      • Bottle£21.00
                                                                    • Chenin Blanc, the Den, South Africa

                                                                      A lively, medium bodied wine with favours of creamy pineapple, pink lady apples and melon. Subtle use of oak adds richness and body, yet the refreshing acidity maintains a clean, fresh bottle. Superb.

                                                                      • Bottle£25.00

                                                                    Red Wine

                                                                    • Cabernet Sauvignon, Deer Point, Bulgaria

                                                                      An approachable Cabernet with all of the cassis and cigar leaf you would expect from the variety.

                                                                      • 125ml£3.25
                                                                      • 175ml£4.50
                                                                      • Bottle£18.00
                                                                    • Monastrell Petit Verdot, Vermador, Spain (Organic)

                                                                      Both these grapes need long sunshine to ripen fully and they get this in the warm region of Alicante. Dark fruits on the nose lead to a mouth-flling wine with plum and cocoa notes. Excellent value, proving organic need not be expensive.

                                                                      • 125ml£4.00
                                                                      • 175ml£5.50
                                                                      • Bottle£22.00
                                                                    • Malbec, Loma Negra, Chile

                                                                      This hearty Malbec has rich favours of damsons and plums with a hint of black pepper and chocolate. A fantastic wine.

                                                                      • Bottle£25.00

                                                                    • Peloton Pilsner 4.1%

                                                                      • Per Bottle£4.75

We were made very welcome by the friendly and efficient staff. They helped us with choices and were warm and informative. The food was the best vegan food I’ve had anywhere in the UK. It’s fresh, beautifully cooked and seasoned and really delicious. The wine too was good value and gorgeous! We loved the ambience and informal style. We will be back, even though we live in Shropshire and Birmingham!
