The menus show a more evolved style to the food that I’ve become known for; more refined, more considered, more sophisticated but fun and lively too. ‘I’ll be building on the foundations of historic British cuisine and celebrating flavours and ingredients that are familiar and much-loved, but interpreting them in my own way ‘I’ll also be working with long-standing trusted suppliers when it comes to fresh produce, meat, and fish; people who I know attach the same importance to quality and sustainability as I do, and who support smaller producers and maintain traditional methods.
