Heal Farm of South Molton source indigenous breeds of British cattle like Red Devons, Angus, Dexters, Herefords and Galloways for us.
The meat is dry-aged on the bone minimum of 28 days to provide a superbly tender and flavoursome steak.
We cook all our steaks in smoking cast iron pans, baste them with foaming beef fat & clarified butter and throw fresh thyme & garlic into the mix for good measure.
Steaks are served with green leaves and our hand-cut triple cooked chips.
