The Set is an intimate 20 seat restaurant overlooking the kitchen, serving seasonal British tasting menus with optional wine flight to match each of the 4 courses. We serve between 14-20 courses during the evening to just 12-16 customers.

Your dining experience takes approximately 2.15-2.45 hours, the table is yours for the night, there's no rush or pressure so please relax and enjoy. We try to avoid long gaps between dishes so your eating more than waiting. We serve 1 menu using the finest ingredients and cook food we love eating with lots of big flavours, fat, fire and umami along the way. Most of our dishes are inspired from travel, childhood and takeaways.

We’re not a fine dining restaurant and play music to follow the dining experience. We choose flavour, technique and simplicity over pretty over complicated plates.

Working with the best British and International micro-seasonal ingredients, heritage slow grown vegetable and fruits, sustainable seafood, native rare breed meats and fine food specialists.

We offer a drinks pairing using an array of delicious alcoholic beverages from around the world.

Due to us being just a 2 team kitchen we don’t cater for dietary requirements, please don’t be offended its not a statement we just don’t have the space, chefs or time to do so.

All bookings are available online, so please click the book now button to secure a table with us.
