Mains feature home-made steak and Guinness pie, beer-battered haddock, balmoral chicken, lamb shank in a rosemary and red wine jus, 8oz ribeye steak with hand-cut chips plus The Grey Horse burger and spaghetti carbonara.

We also have a three-course festive menu for £23.95 and a Christmas Day menu for £45.95. Please ask the waiting staff about them and alert them to allergies.
