Does Tom Kerridge update his menu to keep it seasonal. We are going next month for the second time this year and the menu appears to be the same (we last went in February)?

HI, Like you we go a couple of times a year, and it seems to change 2-3 dishes, but there is a few that have been on there for a while.
Have an evening table booked but I would really like to have fish and chips; is this possible or can I only order from the al a carte menu? Thanks

Not sure it's on menu, but they could probably make it for you.
Booked this for anniversary, looking to stay close by. I'm pregnant so not looking for a far walk or commute any suggestions or hotels. Don't mind a 5-10 cab ride thanks

Try staying at the Hand & Flowers - they have rooms. Alternatively try the Compleat Angler or the Premier Inn (both about a 5 min taxi ride away).
