COVID-19 compliant Dining at the Donkey - Open to Residents & Non-Residents
Quite simply creating a place where you come and enjoy great food and drink in relaxing and comfortable surroundings is and always has been our aim. Scrub-top tables, flagstone and wooden floors provide a relaxed and convivial environment for dining in the casual bar and barn dining room areas while our gardens and terrace are perfect for Summer alfresco dining.
Our daily changing a la carte menu is offered alongside a varied bar menu. The ‘Donkey is a very popular party destination too and bespoke menu design can be offered for groups large or small all year round. Whether a BBQ grill buffet served on our garden terrace for your company day or a simple finger or fork buffet served beside the inglenook fireplace for your family and friends, our chefs are asked regularly to design individual menus for a wide variety of occasions. For further information on our party dining options please call Sian on 01304 617362
It’s all about the food…We don’t count how many calories are in a dish but we will spend a lot of time trying to get the best out of the ingredients. For head chef Eddie and Maitre ‘d John , it’s all about creating dishes that put a smile on your face served by a team with a smile on theirs!
Unfussy, clean & simple dishes all prepared entirely from fresh local produce is what you may expect. Indeed, our restaurant provides truly fantastic food, cooked exceptionally well and priced affordably to ensure everyone can enjoy our delicious dishes cooked with enthusiasm. In addition to baking all our own breads, making our own marmalades and jams and ice creams, our kitchen team source virtually all their ingredients locally. And very importantly we are careful to be able to accommodate most dietary requirements too including vegetarian and vegan.
Whether you’re joining us for breakfast, a coffee and slice of cake in the morning, or it’s lunch or dinner from our main menu, you can be sure to be served the freshest of food, in a very relaxed and comfortable environment . The little ones will love it too as head chef will look after them with his junior menu.
Our restaurant is usually open every day but for now restrictions apply and all reservations must be made in advance via the book-a-table button. Please feel free to call if you prefer..
