The kitchen brigade at the Maids Head are passionate about championing local produce and seasonal ingredients in all their menus. Using fresh ingredients, it provides the opportunity to adapt dishes and make recommendations should diners have particular dietary requirements.

Diners can also choose our 5 course tasting menu with optional wine flight.  Wines have been especially selected to complement the flavours of the dishes.
