Having been involved with several of the world’s gastronomic greats, Richard is now poised to use his taste buds to put his own culinary stamp on the map via the kitchen at the Crabtree.

Everything on the new Crabtree Menu from daily dishes to delicious fresh breads, ice creams, sorbets and truffles, be produced by Richard and his team from scratch, using fresh seasonal ingredients sourced from the local suppliers that Richard will be closely working with.
