Victuals & Company
vit’l,n (commonly in pl.) Articles of food; supplies, or various kinds of provisions
k ō.,n an abbreviation for company – companionship, fellowship, society
Our team create modern, classic and eclectic dishes taking inspiration from British and European food cultures and the best culinary traditions. We make everything ourselves and use fresh, locally produced ingredients wherever possible. Vegetarian, fish and meat options will always be available for both starters and main courses.
We keep our menus simple with a varied à la carte menu on Wednesday to Saturday evenings. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday lunch we offer a fixed price menu. On Sunday evening we ‘Raid the Larder’, our unique concept, where we create a menu for our last service of the week which can be any dish from our current menus or something entirely new, making best use of our stock of ingredients to bring you great value.
Sometimes this means that we are making up dishes on the spot, so it’s best to be flexible as choices can run out early and vary during the evening but they are always top quality and delicious. Due to the nature of ‘Raid the Larder’ the later you come the less choice there will be.
Please always advise us of any specific dietary requirements or intolerances you may have before ordering any of our dishes.
