PLUVIO menus

We offer seasonally changing menus based on the best available ingredients from our farmers, fishers, foragers and producers.

This means that the menus below are 'sample menus', so may not be the same when you come next month, next week, or even tonight!

We do occasionally have to adjust our menu prices, however unless we notify you, increases will only be small.

We do our best to accommodate severe allergies and we will always have vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, diary free, shellfish free and nut free options.

For complex and severe dietary requirements outside of those listed, we ask that you let us know in advance. We can accommodate most things if you are happy to leave the menu choices in the Chef's hands, however there are a few things that we unfortunately cannot eliminate from our food, such as naturally occurring sulphites or fermented products.
