Create a 'sense of occasion' to be remembered
From Birthdays to Anniversaries and gatherings of family and friends, good food brings people together and makes them happy. Our chefs are specifically trained to make the host feel at ease that their event will be a success from the moment they arrive. Whether it be your first Private Dining Experience or one of many enjoyable times entertaining, we can bring the right level of engagement to the party and add that something extra - a truly personal service.
Private Dining is perfect for those with families or elderly guests
No need for a baby sitter when dining at home, we bring the restaurant to you. Elderly guests who may prefer the comfort of being at home, can also join in the fun too.
It can cost less than eating out
From parking and taxis, to baby sitters and expensive wine, eating out can be pricey. Spend your savings on fine wines instead!
