Unique menu collaborations
Payne & Gunter is proud to work with some of the most talented, renowned and respected chefs on the culinary scene on the signature menus we serve in our partnered venues.
Culinary sensation Dipna Anand is renowned for her Brilliant Restaurant and cookery school, where she draws inspiration from the diverse and flavoursome dishes of the Punjab and Northern India. Dipna credits her grandfather for stirring a passion that has seen her excel as a restauranteur, culinary tutor and cookbook author. Now, she brings a varied and vibrant set of menus to the Payne & Gunter collection.
Dedicated to sustainability, seasonality and local ingredients, Bryn Williams developed a deep appreciation for food and its origins from a young age. This appreciation started when his father took him hunting and fishing in North Wales. Since then, he’s worked at some of the most prestigious kitchens in London and is now Chef Patron of Odette’s. Bryn’s instinctive flair and imagination give fruit and vegetables their culinary due in a series of menus that emphasise flavour and feature fresh, local produce.
Chef Patron of the Michelin-starred ‘Marcus’ at The Berkeley Hotel and a prominent judge on BBC's Master Chef, we’re incredibly proud of our partnership with Marcus Wareing. Alongside his contributions to our venue offerings, you’ll find him making guest appearances at prestigious events alongside the Payne & Gunter team – one notable occasion taking place at Wimbledon's Rosewater Pavilion, where he wowed with European-inspired dishes using locally sourced British ingredients.
