The Feather Taverna 

Inspired by our recent trip to Crete. We will convert the Feathers into a Taverna for the May Bank Holiday 7th.
From 12 noon till 3pm. No bookings being taken.
Enjoy the delicious flavours of Crete, the heady wild mountain herbs, olives and lemons that make Crete the most amazing place to dine in Spring. From our little hill top we want to recreate some Cretan delicacies. We will also have fantastic Greek beer and wine along with – Raki and Ouzo – of course!

Ouzo (the aniseed one) Raki (strong and made from grapes)- both served cold neat  to be sipped with Meze. £3 per 25ml
