The Kaye Arms
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Whereas some gastropubs can be accused of style over content, The Kaye Arms let their food do the talking, with healthy portions of truly stunning dishes, served without a hint of pretension. Find modern European influences and contemporary twists on British classics on a menu that retains perfection despite its fullness. The choices change frequently, so you are always guaranteed to find something new and in season. For example, start with homemade bresaola - its deep flavour enhanced by rocket and Parmesan and offset by sweet poached pears - or melt into the sumptuous texture and flavour of crab and crayfish risotto, enriched with tarragon cream.
Mains showcase the finest in meat cuts, fish and fresh vegetables. From traditional sausage with apple mash, creamed leeks and confit onion gravy to delicate poached smoked haddock served on beetroot and spinach, with soft-boiled egg and white wine sauce, the menu offers a myriad of beautifully composed dishes for any taste or appetite. Go all out with confit shoulder of lamb with garlic mash, green beans and redcurrant jus, or keep things light with fresh and smoked salmon fishcake, comprising grilled salmon, lemon butter sauce and peas and beans.
To complement all this stunning food is a well-researched and extensive wine list, featuring some fantastic finds from the New World and Europe - you are sure to find a tipple to match your personal taste and budget. The Kaye Arms really has it all, and should be proud of its growing reputation. As long as it carries on serving up such gorgeous food, this destination gastropub will stay on the culinary map for some time to come.
