In the summer we open the windows of the Veranda wide to let the breeze in. Enjoy fresh local homestyle cooking in a Heritage Homestead surrounded by large linden trees and English Oaks. We grow all our own vegetables and use them in the soups and salads. Some of our specialties are Mistress Catherine’s Fish Cakes made with salt cod and served with salad and homemade beans. The Orwell Salad is a potato salad with a delightful twist. Boiled baby reds tossed in home-made pesto dressing with cheddar cheese, boiled egg and green beans. Start with our Garden veggie soup or complete your meal with a moist carrot cake, bread pudding with whiskey sauce or our seasonal fruit dessert that changes with the season.
