February at the Oarsman

It is snowdrops that encapsulate the energy of February, pushing up through the cold ground sometimes beneath a blanket of snow. They are a sign that things are moving towards spring – but there is plenty more winter still to come. This month, we get a great boost from the lengthening of the evenings and from a few mild days: we are like shoots pushing through the dark soil, faces eagerly towards the sun.

Join us this month in our Valentine’s Day celebration, the perfect occasion to celebrate love and unity with great food and drinks!


Classic Fish Soup, Rouille and Croutons

BBQ Hisbi, White Bean Vinaigrette, Chimichurri

Warm Chocolate Mousse


Bow & Arrow Wines is a winemaking family business whose mission is to produce Loire Valley varieties in the Willamette Valley with a focus on Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Pinot Noir. Fruit is sourced from some of the best cool-climate, organic or biodynamic vineyards and the work in the cellar is completely natural.


Rhubarb Romance.

Sweet and tart and in a beautifully pink shade!


Our Head Chef Scott Smith has been busy in the kitchen concocting a few romance-inducing specials, and our bar team has been inspired by rhubarb to create the ultimate Valentine’s cocktail. Whether you’re looking for a romantic dinner for two or a night out with friends, come join us this Valentine’s Day for an evening of great music, delectable food and thirst-quenching drinks!

Great British Pub Series

 To honour the age-old tradition of ‘The Great British Pub’, The Oarsman & Heaf Chef Scott Smith will invite chefs from celebrated, award-winning pubs across the UK to collaborate and create limited-edition menus! Our first guest chef will join us on the 28th of February – Simon Bonwick from the Dew Drop Inn in Hurley.

More dates & chefs to be announced soon!
