The Shed

The architecture of the building that houses the restaurant has a high-pitched roof and white wood cladding that gives the appearance of a shed, from which it perhaps derives the name. The unusual and offbeat settings of the small intimate restaurant that converts a barnyard into a back- garden with bits of the tractor, piggy portraits and the staff uniform of check shirts carry the signs of a place that is unique in its ways.  The restaurant serves small plates that you can share, and there is a new menu every day.  The family farm in Nutbourne, West Sussex, as well as its surroundings are the sources of supply of fresh ingredients and the wine comes from the Nutbourne vineyard. The puddings are not to miss items on the menu as these are just too good.

The Montagu

The Marylebone restaurant takes pride in serving dishes that carry the distinctive marks of British cuisines made from the best seasonal ingredients obtained from award-winning suppliers and independent British farms.  The vibrant setting of the Montagu oversees the tranquil Portman Square Gardens and is the winner of two AA Rosettes.  From breakfast to lunch and from themed afternoon teas to dinner, the restaurant also offers unlimited weekly brunches, and there is live musical accompaniment for dinner.
