We have put together a small selection of fine wines which we hope will be of interest . These wines are very much biased to being ‘food’ wines so will go with our dinners. We have sought out a range of individual, possibly quirky wines which are brought together by their quality. Although somewhat more expensive than our regular list, we believe that these wines still represent great value, especially for wines of this quality.
Syrah, Domaine de Thelin, Vin de Pays d'Oc, 2010 13.0%
This shows lovely ripe, dark and red berry fruit. Intermingled into these lovely flavours are spices and warm, soft tannins which makes this wine last and develop on the palate. Excellent by the glass but perfect with savory lamb, pork and hard cheeses.
Glass : £4.40 (175 ml) £3.10 (125 ml) Bottle : £16.90
Cabernet Sauvignon,Santa Ema, Maipo Valley, Chile, 2010 13.5%
Absolutely jam packed with loads of blackcurrant fruit bursting out - beautifully rich wine.
Glass : £4.30 (175 ml) £3.10 (125 ml) Bottle : £16.70
Pinot Grigio Collezione La Casada, 2010 12.0%
Fresh and crisp with an appley melon twist

Chardonnay, Santa Ema, d.o. Casablanca Valley, Isla de Maipo, Chile, 2011 13.5%
Plums and velvety notes from mature tannins give this wine a varietal character that combines perfectly with the vanilla, toasty wood of maturation, a wine of great structure and complexity.
Glass : £3.40 (175 ml) £2.60 (125 ml) Bottle : £14.00
Our beers come from BROUGHTON ALES, a small family owned brewery in the next village – some three miles over the hill. This area is famous in Scottish history and renowned for its 13th and 14th century Keeps and Castles where the Ale Wives would have brewed the Beers and Stouts which form the traditional base today for Broughton`s products. The ancient recipes, used now with the aid of modern plant and technology, produce beers and ales of exceptional quality.
