Our Tea & Coffee

Our coffee is supplied by Reads Coffee Roasters, an award-winning family run business in traditional drum roasting of Single Estate Arabica coffee. Based in Sherborne, Dorset. 
The coffee we serve is the Sumatra Bourbon Espresso Blend. Bourbon beans are known for their deep, buttery chocolate flavours, as well as their sweetness and very light fruit overtones. They yield well-balanced coffees and are less common than other types of coffee beans as Bourbon plants generally carry fewer coffee cherries per plant than other varieties.  

Our loose leaf tea is supplied by Ronnefeldt Teas,  who since 1823, have been offering the highest quality tea using only the Orthodox traditional method of producing tea, which means the tea is carefully selected and  manufactured primarily by hand. 

The loose leaf tea’s we serve range from your traditional English Breakfast and Earl Grey to Mint, Green Tea and for the adventurous Granny’s Garden fruit tea! Ask our staff for the full range. 

Our Gin 

We stock Gin Jar hand crafted 100% all grain gin, distilled from 100% British grain spirit, infused with the finest botanicals and carefully bottled by hand at 40% AB.

With flavours such as Rhubarb & Ginger or Burnt Orange, why not try something different. Ask our bar staff for the perfect tonic to make the most refreshing G&T.
