Seeing as the pub is open all day every day it would be a shame if the kitchen wasn’t too– so it is and offers everything from homemade bar snacks to an evening feast and all points in between. So whether you’re popping by for Lunch or rounding out the night with us we’ve got you covered.
No pre-made rubbish here either, all of our food is prepared fresh in our kitchen by Head Chef Richard and his talented team using only the best ethically-sourced ingredients and we’re so proud of them we make sure that you can see them at work in our open kitchen.
Keg, cask, craft or draught – you'll not find us napping on beer duty at The The Guard House: we've got a cracking range featuring locally brewed favourites, proper English ales and continental classics.
The wine list is none too shabby either and we make a mean Bloody Mary for those lazy Sundays too.
Vintages are subject to availability. All prices are inclusive of V.A.T.
Chorus Muscat Moelleux
Complex, citrus and honey notes, with flavours of rose and orange bark.
Norton Cosecha Tardia Late Harvest Chardonnay
Harvested late in the season, the Cosecha Tardia (or Late Harvest) is bright golden yellow in colour. Aromas of flowers and peaches on the nose follow through onto a rich, ripe palate with balanced, fresh acidity and a pleasant finish.
Château Pleytegeat Sauternes
An immediately inviting nose,
combining apricot fruit, creamy patisserie notes and a certain citrus brightness, leads to a sweet yet beautifully balanced palate. Luscious but never cloying.
Ruby Port Ferreira
A fresh and delicate aroma, reminiscent of spices and dry fruit, acquired during oak ageing. In the mouth this is an elegant wine that shows a fine balance between structure and sweetness, providing it with an attractive, long finish.
LBV Port Ferreira
The intense aroma is dominated by very ripe black fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry and prune), along with chocolate, cocoa, floral aromas and a slight hint of spices (pepper). In the mouth it is a full-bodied wine with great balance between sweetness and richness of structure.
Tawny Port 10 Years Old Quinta do Porto Ferreira
The nose is characterised by an excellent balance between the floral and ripe fruit aromas of the grapes themselves and the spicy, dry fruit aromas of long ageing in barrel. The palate shows the classic, fresh Ferreira style, achieving fine balance and a long finish.
