Come on in, join us for a drink and discover innovative, seasonal cooking served in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Whether you choose our three course dinner menu or our six course Tasting Menu, carefully structured menus allow you to savour all courses while our commitment to quality local food in season means there’s always something new to try.

Dinner at 1863 will no doubt generate conversation around the table on the night, but (we hope!) will also give you something to talk about long after you’ve left for the evening.
