Menus

Our menu is written daily from a selection of snacks, charcuterie and larder, starters, mains, cheese and puddings.

A lovely selection of best in show, dietary restrictions are happily catered for.

The Oarsman Wine list

It might appear a bit bonkers, but that’s half the fun, there are over 300 wines, more than 200 grape varieties from forty plus countries, the quandary is, if we don’t list them, you can’t try them – so let’s be a bit bonkers.

All are farmed sustainably, most organically a good deal biodynamically and much with minimal intervention.

They’ve been grouped by style which we hope is helpful, and added notes on grape varieties where it’s not obvious.

The list by the glass will change every week and if there is something you’d like by the 500ml carafe (except the old and rare) we’ll open it – on a simple equation of 2/3rds the full list price.

So on the board you’ll see a new 250ml opportunity available. So look out for additional wines being opened live on the blackboards.

O2, Sherries & Flor

A section devoted to the great wines of sherry, some aged under the veil of yeast called “flor” (these are lighter and saltier) whereas others undergo a more oxidative ageing protocol (these are deeper and have a pronounced nutty quality as well as distinctive umami character). The lighter wines pair well with seafood and oily fish, whilst the more complex ones go excellently with offal, beef and mature hard cheeses. Palomino is the grape here.

Wines that hail from “the sun-baked, cicada-loud, ageless country of scrub and terraced hills… the archetypal Mediterranean landscape of rock & olive, wild thyme, vineyards, light”.

Barney Wilczak makes some of the purest and most thrilling eaux de vie from locally sourced fruit that you will taste from anywhere in the world. They are the essence of the distillation, every piece of fruit hand sorted, and then distilled in a copper still without any additives. The Garden Swift gin from no fewer than 34 botanicals is stunning as well.
