Food and Drink at The Olive Branch
Sean and his team have been working on some great new dishes for the winter menus which now feature 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 as winter has arrived we still have a wonderful selection of brassicas from our paddock and the lincolnshire wolds, as well as herbs and salad from our polytunnel, and foraged herbs & vegetables from the surrounding woodlands and fields. We have a wonderful selection of game from local shoots and estates, as well as meat from local farmers and speciality butchers and of course great cheeses, milk and yoghurt from local dairies including Cropwell Bishop and Sparkenhoe Red Leicester.
There is also superb native Red Mullet, Mackerel and line caught Seabass from Devon and Cornwall and wonderful deep water white fish Hake, Cod, Halibut and Turbot from Newhaven delivered to our door every morning. With wonderful Norweigan Skrie Cod coming into season soon, as well forced rhubarb.
Sean also makes 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.
