Finish on a sweet note and indulge in the mango and white chocolate delice with peach and lime sorbet, or the moreish pear and frangipane tart with crème anglaise and Poire William ice cream. Sunday lunch is another popular affair and guests can choose from several succulent local meats, along with all your favourite trimmings.
