Summer is here, and with it, our summer menu launch. Designed to inspire those quintessential moments that define the season, our menu sings with refreshing dishes and ingredients that are perfect for picnics, beach outings, garden lunches and summer parties.

Giving lunch the love it deserves

Our summer menu launch is about celebrating taking the time for lunch and making it an occasion. Embracing the season and making the most of the abundance of fresh ingredients and summer vegetables that are available to us.

Lunch is a daily obsession for us. And our summer menu elevates everyday ingredients to something extraordinary. Because when you obsess over simplicity, you can make something incredible. A tomato roll is transformed into our Heritage Tomato Bagel. With a thick layer of Quicke’s whey butter, a slick of verdant pistachio & olive pesto and the season’s finest tomatoes, sourced by Natoora, seasoned to perfection with Cornish sea salt. ​

Food this good deserves our undivided attention. Enjoyed without digital distractions.

Let’s do lunch

Summer starters

A summer starter

If you’re hosting a summer party or looking for light bites and starters to enjoy in the summer sun, our summer menu launch has plenty of options to choose from. The Tomato and Artichoke Quiche is a particular favourite, with its buttery shortcrust pastry and creamy ricotta filling. And our Tomato and Courgette Slice is perfect for those who want something rustic and comforting, that is sturdy enough to transport in a picnic basket. Pair them with a selection of our seasonal side salads, as well as the irresistible Two Farmers crisps for the perfect summer smorgasbord.

Summer lunch ideas

Generous sandwiches enjoyed with both hands on the blustery British coastline, languid garden lunches that extend into suppers and spontaneous picnics laid out in sun-dappled fields. Our summer menu launch is designed to inspire these moments. Here’s what’s on the menu:


  • Heritage Tomato Bagel – [Coming Soon!] Our Heritage Tomato Bagel is a real standout, featuring a classic everything bagel spread thickly with Quicke’s whey butter and homemade pistachio and olive pesto. It’s then topped with fresh, juicy tomatoes from Natoora and seasoned with Cornish sea salt. Garnished with rocket, this bagel is the epitome of summer in every bite.

  • Spelt, Cauliflower and Ferments Salad – This salad is a perfect example of how we take simple ingredients and turn them into something extraordinary. We start with Sharpham Park Farm spelt berries from Somerset, toss them in Agrodolce, a traditional Italian condiment made with onions, currants, and red wine vinegar. We then pair them with Eaten Alive ferments, spinach, gently spiced roasted cauliflower and lentil hummus.
