A freshly made seasonal soup with sourdough costs £5.50 and main courses cost around £9.

French-born Head Chef Oakan Brousse has developed the new menu with a creative and seasonal approach, using locally sourced produce wherever possible and herbs and flowers from the St George’s gardens. Oakan originally trained as a pastry chef, and honed his skills at the acclaimed two AA-rosette Berwick Lodge, as well as other rosette holders such as The Lamb Inn in Burford and The Swan in Norfolk, and luxury clubs and event catering in London.
