DISCOVERY & PRESTIGE menus must be pre-booked via email.

Our DISCOVERY menu (£40pp) is our four-course showcase playfully observing the ideology of cocktails in a tasting menu format. DISCOVERY brings together the very best of seasonal flavours through the wonderful, and somewhat, lost art of preservation.

PRESTIGE (£50pp) is our six course degustation showcasing ‘The Art of the Tasting Menu’. Expect a sequence of courses from light to spirituous to rich, in a coherent progression of flavour. A truly unique experience delivering a dalliance of intricate flavours to delight, tease and please the palate, weaving through courses like an operetta building to a crescendo.

Due to the special nature and preparations involved in our cocktail tasting menus we request dietary information and insist on pre-booking with deposits.
