to compliment each other. Seven Sisters is a mild delicate sheeps cheese with a seaweed

rind. Little Sussex is also a sheeps cheese but soft and punchy. Duddleswell is a

local delicious creamy cheddar. The renowned Pevensey Blue, probably the best blue

MAINS.

BEEF SHIN TAGLIATELLE RAGU              £22

Our ragu is cooked over 12 hours. The first day we cook the beef shin for

8 hours with the bone. The bone marrow melts into the sugo and develops the flavour.

We then leave it to rest over night whilst making a stock with the bones to be

re-introduced back into the ragu. The tagliatelle is made fresh every morning.  (GF)

THE POCO.                    £19

You will find our poco being made fresh every morning in the window. It is born from

Sussex ricotta and parmesan with flat leaf parsley filling and close the pasta then,

fry sage leaves in butter to create a sage butter baste. (V)
