Food and Drink at The Olive Branch
Luke and the kitchen team have been working hard to create inspired dishes for our Autumn menus.
We are growing even more of our own produce in the pub paddock. We have planted potatoes, betroots, radishes, carrots and rhubarb in our veg patches and nasturtiums, salads, herbs & cucumbers in our polytunnel with more being added each week. We have foraged and preserved wild garlic, berries, herbs and mushrooms from the hedgerows and woods.
We have been sourcing new suppliers, farmers and producers to add to our great network of friends. We source cheese, yoghurts and milk from local dairies including Vine Farm in Old Dalby, meats from Price & Fretwell butchers as well as local hogget from Stretton, pork from Grasmere Farm and Dandelion Farm. We have game from hte local shoots at Clipsham, Holywell and Belvoir. Shellfish from Norfolk, and sea water fish from the ports of Devon and Cornwall. Vegetables are from the Lincolnshire Wolds.
All our menus may change throughout the season according to the ingredients available
