Executive chef, Ben Orpwood has created a modern sharing themed menu but the piece d resistance is an outside terrace to enjoy the Asian menu.

He said: “We’ve been incredibly busy over the past few weeks, working away in the kitchen to put the finishing touches to the menu to make sure it’s perfect.
