Turducken is the house specialty, consisting of a deboned chicken stuffed into a deboned duck, stuffed into a deboned turkey. The dish is a form of engastration - a recipe method in which one animal is stuffed inside the gastric passage of another. Outside of America, it is known as a ‘Three Bird Roast’. ‘Gooducken’ is a traditional English variant, replacing turkey with goose.

“We serve a classic but gutsy traditional-British menu using local and seasonal ingredients - often straight from the farm, There’s an abundance of great produce all around us including mouth-watering aged beef, old breeds of pork and lamb, delicious award-winning cheeses and ice creams, organic stone-milled flour, fragrant heather honey, really good organic vegetables, super-fresh fish and a host of award-winning beers.”
