The Chef’s Table Private Dining Room is the perfect place to celebrate a family occasion or host your colleagues for a meeting.

The room, seating up to 18 people, boasts two large glass doors through to the main hub of our kitchen allowing your guests to watch our talented chef’s as they prepare and cook your meals as well as panoramic views of our modern, yet homely restaurant meaning your party will still feel the vibrant atmosphere of our bustling restaurant whilst benefitting from the exclusivity of the Private Room that our Chef’s Table allows. The Chef’s Table also has it’s own sound system and a flat screen screen television placed on the wall of the room which can be used to play a slideshow of photos, a presentation or connect to a camera that is placed in the Kitchen allowing you to personalise the room to your specific occasion.

All parties of 10 or more people are asked to pre-order from our Private Dining Menus two weeks prior to the meal with us, allowing us enough time to order in and prepare the fresh ingredients for your meal.

Wonderful meal - excellent food and wine in a beautiful setting with very friendly and attentive service. My husband and I were there with our almost 6 year old (who is and adventurous eater and enjoyed the food from the standard lunch menu) and the grandparents and we all had an excellent meal. Thank you!
