Join us Up On The Roof on Saturday 29th May for a taste of la dolce vita!
It’s no secret that we love the Italian way of cooking and eating, it is a constant inspiration to us! Summer is on its way and there are some wonderful ingredients available - as always we’ll be serving them up deliciously simply.
All dishes are designed to share, from the kitchen & from the fire. Order as much as you like, graze & feast! Dishes will be served from the kitchen & fire when they are ready.
This is a 'super special' daytime only event - and for those who fancy a double hit - join us for The Italian Canteen in The Mowbray later on in the evening...
Up On The Roof…
We cook with charcoal and wood and with fire and flames Up On The Roof.
Fresh BBQ beachy vibes and all the flavour from low and slow.
As ever we’ll be serving up seasonal and exceptional ingredients so we’ll be working to a daily menu with a ‘what’s great right now’ thinking.
There’s something really special about cooking and eating outside - senses are heightened, great vibes happen and we’re hoping we can create a really special rooftop hideaway for you to enjoy! There’ll be plenty of garden cocktails and beers from our rooftop bar, a spring/summer al fresco soundtrack and plenty of good mood food and feels...
Up On The Roof is found on our private first floor rooftop which was part of the restoration of The Mowbray. It’s a complete hideaway escape and we’ve curated it so it feels vibrant as well as safe.
