Representing an outstanding commitment to the best seasonal ingredients, our kitchen is ingredient-led, buying each day from our family of suppliers around the British Isles.

Through our acclaimed dinner series, customers meet the passionate family of farmers and fishermen who supply us.


 


Our Kitchen Table, established in 2009, is the equivalent of culinary theatre, allowing diners to get the full sounds, smells and sights of a professional kitchen at work while enjoying a five course tasting menu.
