  • Restaurant With One Table

  • When a Master Chef decides to open a restaurant with just one table, you might conclude that the vino finally got to him! This totally new concept has been conceived out of frustration and a desire to develop food that does not conform to the normal paradigms. Where there will be no compromise on quality, ingredients or taste, and where excellence comes as standard. The table will seat up to eight guests, and can be booked in two ways: An exclusive table for you and your guests or an open table to dine with fellow guests and make new friends. After consultation with you, we will create a meal that will be unique to you and your party of guests. Some may wish to know in advance, but I think it is better to be a complete surprise! The best meals are the ones I create on the night, making the most of the Derbyshire's market.
