Dinner dates with ian bates – my pop-up restaurant
I am delighted that very well-respected local chef, Ian Bates, is cooking regularly at my pop-up restaurant at The Cross. Ian has been cooking for 30 years and has worked in the kitchens of some of the best places to eat in Somerset, London and France!
During 2017, Ian will be cooking dinner for up to 12 people here at The Cross. The menu will be seasonal, fresh and simple and the atmosphere relaxed and informal. Residents and non-residents can book places at my pop-up restaurant.
pop-up restaurant – MENUs AND PRICE
Details of the main ingredient in each of the 3 courses is listed below. (You will have to wait until the dish is served to find out how it has been prepared and cooked!) Please let me know in advance if you require a vegetarian option.
My kitchen space is limited, so please be aware that alternative dishes are not available. The price is fixed for 3 courses and won’t be reduced for those requiring 2 courses. Don’t worry about the calories for one night – the food is going to be fabulous!
Dinner is £38 per person. My doors will be open for pre-dinner drinks from 7pm. Ian will serve dinner at 7.30pm.
Places need to be booked at least 24 hours in advance as fresh produce is bought and prepared to order. In the unlikely event of menus changing, guests will be notified in advance. Come and enjoy fantastic food in a lovely setting at this pop-up restaurant.

a Pop-up restaurant AND MUCH MORE
Get a few friends together and come and experience Ian’s amazing food. We are aiming to be one of the best pop-up restaurants in Somerset! If you would like to hold a private party or dinner at The Cross, please get in touch. Ian is happy to cook for parties of 8 and above.
The Cross can also be hired for other private functions. The premises are fully licensed and as a former public house the configuration of the building lends itself to social gatherings. There is also a courtyard garden to enjoy when the Somerset weather is good.
I hope to be able to welcome you to The Cross soon.
