Menu items include duck confit and risotto croquettes with pineapple chutney and balsamic reduction; roasted beet salad with balsamic strawberries, citrus yoghurt dressing, fennel pollen and leek ash goat cheese; and chili salted squid with red pepper and Spanish onion.
Glamorgan Bakery is a family-run bakery in the southwest that is best known for their locally famous cheese buns. They go beyond typical grocery store recipes, as they are made fresh daily with real cheese, making them moist, and come in a variety of flavours like white or whole wheat flour, as well as ham and cheese.
