Here at GBR, we are extremely excited to invite you to a one of a kind celebration of our country’s wonderful culinary tastes on Tuesday 9th July.

The two chefs will unite forces to honour wonderful British fayre with an exclusive six course tasting menu, influenced by their mutual roots, which we are certain will be a night to remember.
