Our private dining menus use seasonal produce, so you'll enjoy only the best ingredients. Chat to our Head Chef and his team about the menu to make sure it's absolutely perfect and caters to everyone's needs. With 25 years of experience in the catering industry, Nigel Powell is classically trained and has worked in some of the finest restaurants in London, you're in safe hands with our chef. Each meal is complimented with a hand-picked wine or champagne, to make your experience extra special.
Focussing on the very best local ingredients, expect dishes such as pan roasted cod loin with saffron sautéed potatoes, rack of lamb with a rosemary minted crust and goats cheese, pear and caramalised onion tart. And for dessert, indulgent treats include salted caramel and chocolate tart, champagne poached pear and raspberry sorbet and trio of chocolate. Although the menu changes regularly to incorporate seasonal produce, it stays utterly delicious.
