A 9-COURSE SURPRISE MENU FOR LUNCH OR DINNER, WITH A PAIRED WINE FLIGHT
Each of our surprise courses is paired with a wine carefully selected from this season's wine list.
We also offer a 7-course option with fewer paired wines for £145.
Pre-booking is essential – the nature of our menu means that we can not accept walk-in guests. The easiest way to book is by telephone. You can also enquire about availability by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please leave a contact number.
It’s worth noting that we are closed on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, and generally have better availability mid-week.
The restaurant can be booked for private events or receptions for up to 22 people. Please call us or email to discuss your requirements.
Our tasting menus are set and feature the very best meat, fish and dairy produce. We are eager to make our dishes as good as they can be so we are unable to alter them or offer vegan and vegetarian options.
Please note, our kitchen is not allergen free and always features ingredients like soy, eggs, nuts, dairy and seafood. If you have other specific dietary requirements (an intolerance to a particular ingredient, for example) please discuss this with us before you book.
"I grew up in Buckie, Banffshire and money was tight. Everyone grew vegetables and cooked everything from scratch. But it wasn’t until I started writing menus and developing my own cooking style, I appreciated how much my upbringing had influenced my passion for food."
Gordon Jones was born in Birmingham but brought up in Buckie in Scotland. This is where he first started cooking with his Mum. She instilled a devotion to fresh home-grown ingredients, which is still the cornerstone of his approach.
Aged 14, Gordon began working in an Indian restaurant. This also influenced his cooking style, with an openness to flavours from across the world, particularly Asia. Since then he has trained with Michelin-starred Chefs, such as Martin Wishart and Martin Blunos, honing his skills as the Head Chef The Royal Crescent Hotel in Bath, before opening his own restaurant – Menu Gordon Jones.
In a 2017 review, Tom Parker Bowles of the Daily Mail wrote: “Jones has restored my faith in the tyranny of the tasting menu. A chef at the very peak of his considerable powers”.
Although recent television appearances on the BBC’s Great British Menu have brought even more attention, Gordon’s focus remains firmly dedicated to making Menu Gordon Jones one of the most exciting independent restaurants in the country. That means every dish is created and cooked by Gordon and his team at every service. As he often says – “It’s my name on the door.”
