Our Process

With an emphasis on freshness, flavour and originality, here’s a little look into the creative processes behind our menus:


Step 1: Whats in season?

Head Chef Andrew Wilkinson visits with and speaks to our suppliers to hand pick only the freshest of produce which is at its absolute best. 

Step 2: Suitable flavour partners?

Inspired by his produce, Andrew and his team consider other ingredients to complement and enhance the working dish.

 
Step 3: How can we create balance?

Cooking begins, expertly combining the natural intensity of fresh flavour found within our raw ingredients with the knowledge and passion of our chefs to develop outstanding menus.

Passion and high standards

Daily briefs to our front of house staff keep our team fully informed about our menus, suppliers and seasonal choices and allow us to present you with dishes we are proud to create and serve. 

Step 6: How does it eat?

Andrew spends time tasting and refining new dishes to ensure all elements work, modifying the flavours, textures and cooking processes until the finished plate reaches his high standards. Only then will it be added to our menu.
