Our first guest chef night was a sell out and excited, hungry guests started arriving from 7pm to enjoy a menu that included the best Longhorn beef we’ve ever tasted, Dauphinoise potato and cavolo nero.

Thanks to all of them, all our staff, and, of course, to Richard Edney, Angela Hartnett and her head chef at the Whitechapel Gallery Dining Room, Emma Duggan.
