Menu

Our easy to digest menu is a celebration of signature British dishes.

Perhaps to follow, our crispy belly pork with a raspberry & port reduction. Slowly roasted for caramelized flavour & extra tender meat. Served with a rich buttered cabbage. We have combined the familiarity of a comfortable gastro-pub with a touch of elegance. We are proud to share that we source all of our meat through Venture Restaurants very own butcher, Meat Boutique. With no middle man we are able to consistently serve only premium products.
