To celebrate this great news, Tom Hamblet is taking residency as Head Chef of Camellia restaurant at South Lodge between 3rd January – 31st March 2024 and The Avenue restaurant at Lainston House between April 3rd – June 30th 2024.

A three course menu will be offered that showcases and shares with you dishes inspired by his time on MasterChef: The Professionals 2023.

Take a look at the dinner menu below inspired by the challenges from the show. The dishes are subject to small changes due to seasonality and sourcing the best produce on the day.
