The new six course tasting menu includes:

Spam & Mash: Potato Espuma, Smoked Ham Hough, Pickled Mustard Seed;

Chicken Kiev: Black Garlic Emulsion, Pea Pesto, Rainbow Radish;

Salmon Tikka Marsala: Onion Bhaji, Caramelised Cauliflower, Lime Gel;

Duck A L’Orange: Confit Duck, Aromatic Carrot, Orange Puree.

It wouldn’t be a proper 1970’s menu without a trifle – Summer Berries, Saffron, Almond Sponge and Whipped Creme Friache.

Chef Nico Simeone said:

“People ate the most bizarre stuff in the ’70s and we want to create incredible new dishes that would define the decade. It was the era of the showboat dinner party when meals didn’t just taste out of this world, they looked out of this world too.”
