I have always loved to cook and as a child could often be found surrounded by eggs, flour and butter attempting to create something delicious. I trained as a cordon bleu cook as soon as I could and have cooked happily ever since – the last 5 years for Sleeps12.
I work directly with all my clients to discuss menus and specific wishes and am very happy to cater for all dietary requirements. I use the best local ingredients I can find and am happy to cater for small and large groups.
My aim is to take the stress and hassle away from you so that you can sit back and enjoy your special meal knowing that all you have to do is sit down while my friendly waitresses and I do all the hard work including the washing up and tidying away!

APPLE BAY BAR & RESTAURANT
Apple Bay Bar is a modern space designed to maximise your experience at Sheppy’s. All the team here in Apple Bay will be delighted to serve you a drink from our bespoke bar; we have a specially selected menu of drinks from local producers where possible, which we will be serving alongside our Sheppy’s Cider.
Producing Somerset cider for over 200 years, the Sheppy family specialises in premium craft ciders. We are proud to bring you a bar that specialises in serving you the ciders we make here at Three Bridges Farm. The bar features our award-winning Somerset Draught and Cider with Raspberry. We have an experienced, knowledgeable and enthusiastic team who will be able to recommend the best cider for your palate or to accompany your meal.
If you are unsure about any of our products we would be happy to provide you with a sample. We always encourage our customers to try our range before they buy; after all we have nothing to hide! We hope that once you try our ciders you see why Sheppy’s has a reputation for some of the finest English cider.
You will be able to see from our restaurant menu we recommend some cider pairing for our dishes. For example, our Oak Matured Vintage and our artisan cheese board complement one another beautifully, and make a perfect end to your meal. We have something to suit everyone.
We hope you are able to visit Apple Bay to enjoy our range of products and expertise, and we look forward to welcoming you.
