Our food is locally sourced and grown onsite as much as possible. Our weekly menus are seasonal, using the very best our region has to offer. Lovingly prepared by Nina, our chef, and her very able assistant Philippa. Food is at the heart of Lee Byre and brings us together after a day's walking or whatever adventure we've had that day.
