Starters include; tuna tartare with kimchi emulsion and bottarga, tempura cod cheeks with aioli and fennel pollen, and a lobster ravioli with fish sauce, cured salmon, with pickles and a burnt orange and beetroot emulsion. 

Main dishes include; grilled octopus and squid cassoulet, clam and mussel linquine and wild bass served with dill crushed potatoes, smoked leeks and sauce vierge.

Osters will also serve Lindisfarne oysters, which will be served with Hepple gin and tonic granita or grilled with creamy samphire and pangrattato – crispy breadcrumbs.
