Private dining

Come dine with us

Although it doesn’t have a separate dining space per se, the restaurant can section off areas of the dining room for private dinners.

Alex and his team of expert chefs have created a number of additional menu options exclusive to private diners. You may create your own bespoke set menu, opt for one of the fixed-priced, set menus, or choose the ever-popular ‘Bring me Food’ menu, with dishes delivered platter-style to the centre of the table for communal feasting.

Private diners may also select from the restaurant’s a la carte menu. If you still can’t find the menu you want - ask Alex to create you one!
