The summer tasting menu is reflective of Chef Chris Rees’ personal food ethos and belief that fine dining should be fun, with this latest menu playing up seasonal flavours and incorporating local produce.

The showstoppers of the menu, such as the halibut and beef are sourced by Chris and his team from local suppliers, whilst the majority of the fruit and vegetable components of the menu are seasonal, such as the strawberries, tomatoes, peas and tarragon, allowing diners to experience the best quality food at its peak.
