Lee’s 50th birthday party was an evening of Italian indulgence and delight! We curated a fabulous menu inspired by the home of great feasts Italy! The Bar was brimming with Champagne, the finest wines and divine Italian Cocktails to match the Feasting Table.
The menu was inspired by passion, simplicity, provincial flavours and century old cooking techniques - synonymous with Italian heritage.
The Italian approach to eating represents everything we strive for at The Mowbray, From the ingredients to the sociability of feasting around a huge table for a long lazy evening of eating and drinking…
It’s what we do best!
