We opted for the A La Carte option which was fabulous. Amazing food and chef happily worked with us on our meat cooking preference. Great wine list too. Service was attentive but not in your face. We will definitely be returning.

We had a very enjoyable evening with beautifully presented 5 course dinner on Tuesday's Test Kitchen. The staff were friendly and informative and the chef came and served us while chatting with us about the origins of the produce. He clearly enjoys creating good food.

Fabulous dining at the Chefs Table this evening... favs were the tomatoes w a divine romesco sauce and the Tahr tartare. Cocktails and suggested wine accompaniments paired superbly. Thanks to Jack, Lucie and the Ode team for a beautiful evening.

Flavours were beautiful Hubby raved about the 3x cooked potatoes- best he’s ever eaten! Venison rib was melt in the mouth. Apricot dessert was so full of flavour.
