Seasonal food heroes

Look out for our autumn seasonal food heroes. Our menus are inspired by the seasons and each month our chefs have fun choosing a different ‘food hero’ to inspire new dishes. Our food heroes are glorious emblems of the British seasons, such as summer strawberries or winter root vegetables.
