The Company:

The format of menu which we are building great reviews for, includes a seasonal menu, changing four times a year, accompanied by a specials board which changes daily, depending on what's currently available.

We want a head chef who shares this ethos with us. The wine list has been built up around artisanal and low intervention wines.
