DISCOVERY & TASTE OF JAPAN menus must be pre-booked via email.

Our DISCOVERY menu (£40pp) is our four-course showcase playfully observing the ideology of cocktails in a tasting menu format. DISCOVERY brings together the very best of seasonal flavours through the wonderful, and somewhat, lost art of preservation.

Due to the special nature and preparations involved in this cocktail tasting menu we request dietary information in advance and insist on pre-booking with deposits.

TASTE OF JAPAN (£60pp) is our five course food paired cocktail tasting menu showcasing
Sekki; the seasonal calendar of Japan dividing the year into 24 sections or mini seasons.
Taste of Japan features five stunning courses presented in a progression of flavour, featuring Japanese food pairings throughout.

Unfortunately due to the specialised nature of this menu, we cannot cater to any dietary requirements and insist on pre-booking with deposits.
