Introducing The Supper Club
The Supper Club was formed in 2012 and has grown from strength to strength. It is enjoyed by the locals and some regulars from as far away as York! It is a great opportunity to meet up with new people and friends for good conversation, good food and a few drinks!
The Supper Club is held in the Cricketers Bar from 6.30 to 8.30pm - call for future dates. The price is usually £14 per person and includes a glass of wine with a healthy sized main course. In some cases tables are shared to keep the atmosphere informal and to allow the regulars to catch up on the local news.
Each month the theme of the menu changes, but each time we like to carefully balance the meal and the wine. There is no membership fee, or club rules as such, but due to its popularity, reservations are recommended as early as possible as most evenings are a full house.
So if you would like to join the fun call reservations on 01653 628234 to reserve your table or seat. Come along and meet the locals!!

La Liebre Y La Tortuga, Rias Biaxas, Alberino 2016
The haddock has been naturally smoked so the flavour is subtle and not too overpowering. We can therefor look to a wine without oak, the risotto with its creamy texture will have an added richness from the egg yoke, so we need some cutting acidity, but enough fruit to stand up to the smokiness. Sauvignon Blanc would be an option but a bit bland, so I have gone for a wine that is new to our list from Galicia. Albarino is a wonderful food matching grape,its combination of mineral acidity and slightly tropical fruit notes should work well.
Main Course, Dessert and Glass of Selected Wine, £18.00
