undeniably, the centrepiece of our restaurant is the rotisserie

the reason this particular method of cooking makes meats so delicious – especially when it’s good local produce – is that it allows for a unique, self-basting action which delivers an even and juicy spit roast in just under an hour.

this rotisserie chicken starts with good brine and ends with a bunch of smiling faces and sticky fingers. so go ahead, make the commitment. you’re worth it.

try our succulent sharing chicken – barn-reared indian rock from swainson house farm, or the half chicken with various dips – the flavours will linger on your taste buds and make you crave a return visit!
