Sunday lunch at the Orchard restaurant
Treat yourself and relax on a Sunday afternoon by having Sunday lunch at the Orchard restaurant. This delicious three-course menu includes chilled melon with berry compote or chicken liver parfait with melba toast and red onion jam to start. For main, there's roast loin of pork, crackling and red wine jus, or roast rib eye of beef with Yorkshire pudding and beef gravy. For dessert you can savour the berry panna cotta, or for something more savoury, there's cheese and biscuits with celery.
Why not choose a bottle of wine to complement your meal from the restaurant's wine list. Sauvignon Blanc, Finca El Picador, Chile is from the house wine selection; this is a zesty wine with citrus notes in a tropical finish.
