| Beer of the Week

Beau's Wild Oats

Broadhead's Dark Horse Stout is a fullbodied, rich and creamy oatmeal stout that bristles with bold, unbridled taste. Blending roasted malt and oatmeal for a solid footing, this smooth, dark beer has shades of bitterness that gives Dark Horse the perfect edge.


| Wine of the Month

Pepperwood Grove Old Vine Zinfandel

This Californian wine is made of 100% old vine Zinfandel grapes, this big, mouth-filling wine is deep purple in colour with a bouquet of blackberry, fresh fig, white pepper and clove. This full-bodied zin shows dark rich flavours of black currant, raspberry, tobacco leaf, and caramel. A delicious partner with sausage pizza, grilled burgers or your favourite pasta served with a rich, hearty sauce. Try this wine with one our our homemade pasta's today!
