The Tack Room kitchen is fired up for this

If you’re a fan of good food then the 16th of August has to be marked in your diaries now as The Tack Room gears up to welcome a special guest into the kitchen as we present another of our collaboration dinners. 

Off the back of the success of our first collaboration dinner earlier this year, we’re at it again and this time we have renowned chef Mark Poynton teaming up with our head chef Adam for a dinner that has us seriously excited.

The evening will allow both chefs to showcase their skills and sees them take turns throughout the menu to try and wow you with their dishes. 

The format will be the same as our previous effort with four snacks to kick things off followed by a starter, fish dish and main. There will be a pre-dessert before things are rounded off with a decadent dessert.

You can enjoy all of this experience for just £59 per person with the amount payable on booking. There is also the option of adding a flight of wine with your meal.

“We’re thrilled to be doing another collaboration dinner. The concept seems to work really well and we all have a lot of fun doing them as we found out during our first one. 

“Working with someone with Mark’s experience and credentials is a massive bonus for us here at The Tack Room not only for myself but for our entire kitchen to be able to learn from someone like himself. I know me and the boys in the kitchen are really excited for this and we’re working on some exciting dishes for the night.”

The menu will be unveiled in the next two weeks but we’re giving you the chance to get those bookings in early as Mark’s current events sell out in minutes!

About Mark Poynton

Poynton has enjoyed a successful career in the kitchen having first entered the industry as a waiter all those years ago. Since then he’s gained a reputation as a seriously good chef. His time at the two-Michelin starred Midsummer House and having achieved Michelin star status while chef patron of Alimentum, attest to the esteem in which he is held by his colleagues and supporters.

At the moment. Poynton is running a series of highly-successful pop-up restaurant experiences and he is also widely regarded for his methods which sometimes sees him deviate from what many consider to be a more traditional approach. He can take the classics and turn them on their heads, coming up with creative and imaginative interpretations which people love. He’s also a big fan of seasonal menus which ensures that his followers are always enjoying something new.

One thing is certain, we are definitely looking forward to having Mark in the kitchen in a month’s time.

Australian Wine and Food Dinner

We are thrilled to be hosting another of our wine tasting dinners with an exciting event taking place here at The Tack Room on the 3rd of July as we welcome sixth generation winemaker Trent Burge from Barossa Boy.

For just £55 (RRP £70) our guests for the evening will be spoilt with delicious food from our kitchen with Head Chef Adam taking on the current fusion food trend, using native Australian ingredients, while Corney & Barrow will be supplying the wines for the evening.

It will be the first time that the Barossa Boy wines and Trent will be featured at an event in the UK and promises to be an evening not to be missed. This could be the ideal date night dinner or a summer evening spent with friends and family.

On the evening, Head Chef Adam will talk diners through the menu while Trent will discuss his wines and there will also be some insight from Ben Pym of Corney & Barrow.

As far as the story of Barossa Boy wines goes, the family can trace their winemaking roots back to 1855 when Trent’s great-great-great grandfather immigrated to South Australia. A particularly fine vintage in 2016, which our guests will sample, got the Barossa Boy brand off to a flying start.

Trent’s deep understanding of the land plays a key role in the style of his wines, sourcing grapes of the highest quality from specific long-term growers with whom he has worked with over many vintages. He crafts wines that are classically Barossa in structure and flavour profile, but with a lightness of touch that is resolutely modern.
