Suppers & Luncheons

Our suppers and lunches are designed to be intimate affairs with 8 to 12 guests per evening. The suppers take place at our home on the outskirts of Haywards Heath, West Sussex just a short cab ride or reasonable walk from the mainline station. As they are held in our home informality is the order of the day.

Each menu has been thoroughly researched and tested to allow you experience a modern approach to historical cooking. Typically we serve a set menu consisting of a complimentary beverage with a canapé, three courses with homemade sourdough bread plus coffee and a selection of teas. We want you to leave sated, inspired and happy. With this in mind we use only the best ingredients sourced as locally as possible. In the spirit of of our ancestral cooks almost everything is made from scratch whether it be stock, pastry or bread. All you need to bring with you is a healthy appetite and your choice of drink for the evening.

We also run cookery workshops at certain times of the year.
