Conscious and creative dining meets hospitality experience and passion. From a trio of  gentleman. Chefs Jack Croft and William Murray, and career entrepreneur James Robson.


Cuttlefish fried toast, pork skin, sesame, chilli jam

Crispy fried toast flavoured with cuttle paste, topped with crispy pork scratchings and a dipping sauce of sweet and spicy XO chilli jam.


Chicken thigh, lamb sweetbread, satay and Rare breed pork, Thai basil, chilli skewers

Contrasting sweetness of the chicken thigh and tenderness of the sweetbread, finished with a satay sauce delivering a delight kick of heat.

Crispy marinated pork belly, complimented by flavoursome Thai basil and chilli.

Caramelised banana parfait, peanut, toasted vanilla

An absolutely amazing zero waste dessert, technically brilliant, a banana parfait, filled with banana jam and caramel in the form of a banana, roasted peanuts, peanut ice cream and what appears to look like a crisp twig from banana skin. Served with a banana skin caramel and crisp sable crumb.
