Food and Drink at The Olive Branch
The kitchen team have been working on some great new dishes for the spring & summer menus, which will soon start to eature on our party menus and on the lunch and dinner menus.
We grow our own and source local and seasonal produce. At this time of the year, we have a beets, other cucurbits, potatoes and root vegetables the Lincolnshire Wolds, as well as some herbs from our polytunnel. We have foraged berries, herbs an dmushrooms from hedgerows and woods. With a superb selection of meat from local farms and speciality butchers, as well as game from local shoots and estates. Not to forget great cheeses, milk and yoghurt from local dairies in the Vale of Belvoir, including Cropwell Bishop, Vine Farm and Sparkenhoe Red Leicester.
We're also cooking with superb shellfish from Norfolk and the Yorkshire coast; seabream and seabass from ports in Devon and Cornwall; and wonderful deep-water white fish – hake, cod and pollock from Newhaven – delivered to our door every morning.
We make regular trips to local farms, and Billingsgate and New Covent Garden markets, to find other seasonal ingredients, which often appear as specials alongside our other menus.
