The Orchard Food & Wine Bar

After sauntering through the rustic dining area and into the courtyard at The Orchard Food & Wine Bar, one would not be surprised to come across its namesake, such is the character of the space.

The interior, too, fits nicely with the theme. Ornamental gardening tools decorate one wall, while the other plays host to an enticing specials board. Customers are invited to sit at sturdy wooden tables laden with dishes of sugar cubes and rock salt, and fresh country blooms sprouting from striking tin jugs.

The restaurant offers lunch until 5pm, and opens for dinner until 11pm. On Saturdays they open an extra hour early to accommodate the weekend breakfast crowd.

Specials change daily at The Orchard and might include broccoli and gorgonzola soup or white anchovy and peperonata bruschetta. There are plenty of highlights on the permanent menu as well, including the brioche doughnuts with double cream and strawberry jam.

The cafe/wine bar, which boasts an impressive wine and beer list, also has happy hour between 5pm and 7pm and plays host to occasional events such as the degustation evenings held in the dining room.
