Menu Surprise

This is for the Ultimate Night of Private Dining. An evening where the menu is seasonal, made with what the Chef can source and forage, therefore it will only be decided a few days before the event. This night is designed for people who are adventurous as you won’t know what you are going to eat until it is presented to you, but don’t worry we will have an in-depth consultation period to find out likes and dislikes, so you won’t be served something you don’t like.

We took advantage of the dining experience and booked Oyster & Olive to cook a 3-course meal which was amazing, especially as my husband has specific dietary requirements. Nothing was too much trouble.

We had a wonderful 10 day stay at Paddock view. Oyster and Oliver were superb, a lovely treat.
