Dry January – a helping hand January 3, 2016

The New Year always marks the start of the battle against the Christmas bulge and an attempt to counteract the excesses of the Festive period. Not forgetting those new resolutions and good intentions…

So, if you’re taking a break from the booze this month, please don’t become a hermit!

We have so many alcohol-free options for you; from Cocktails and Beers; to our delicious range of Smoothies and Milkshakes.

Best of luck to the ‘new you’ and Happy New Year!

Autumn & Winter 2015/16 – NEW SEASONAL MENU October 21, 2015

As another year draws to a close we wrap up warm and cosy in for the next few months.

Autumn always provides a wonderful palate to enjoy, with traditional spices and fruits always playing a role in our seasonal creations.

This year we’ve taken inspiration from orchard fruits and festive flavours to bring you our unique creations of food and cocktails. Check out our new drinks menu here.

Our food menu has really expanded this year and we’re so happy to be delivering high quality, small batch produce made exclusively for us by @Beehivefood. Come and get 3 seasonal small-plates for £14 or try one of our larger dinner specials for only £7.

We also have our Winter Warmers range for you, featuring our home-made mulled cider & wine, luxurious hot chocolate and other favourite toasty tipples!

Make sure you visit us soon to enjoy our seasonal offerings.

Spring Menu Launch 2015 February 26, 2015

Well, we’ve nearly made it through another Winter and the signs of Spring are appearing. We have lots to look forward to in 2015 and one of the early features is the change of our Seasonal menus.

We’ve been working on a new approach to the food and cocktails at Proof and are looking forward to sharing the results with you.  Fresh tasting light bites to mix and share with friends with some plates matched to seasonal cocktails too.

We usually target the Easter weekend as our launch, which this year falls on the first weekend of April; although, expect a few early-bird treats after the Spring solstice (March 21st).
