Nine dinner courses of the latter will set you back £225 per person, but promises a ‘behind the scenes dining experience’.

It says: “The Chef’s Table offers an intimate insight into the energy and activity of the kitchen.

“Accommodating four to six guests, a bespoke menu, created by Chef Director Ashley Palmer-Watts, will be served direct to your table by the chef.”

The restaurant’s website says: “The savoury ice creams of the late 1800’s, the theatre of the Tudor dining experiences and the dishes of Alice’s adventures in Wonderland all resonated with his unique approach to cooking.

“Dedicated to the modern day discovery and evolution of dining he realised that the excitement and obsession with food is no new modern day phenomena.”

Together with Ashley Palmer-Watts, the pair created a menu reflecting these passions.

They used 14th century cookbooks, such as those used by King Richard II, and worked with food historians to create the menu.

To date it has received more than 30 accolades and recognitions.
