"When we started thinking about the menu at Café Du Jardin it was a blank canvas in a unique setting. My approach was a combination of years in the kitchen, time spent travelling and working around France and the desire to offer something personal. I wanted to find the balance between classic French bistro-style dishes and modern Parisian/British cuisine whilst giving our customers what they want to eat at lunchtime. Ultimately though, my attitude has always been, "keep it simple, cook the food you love and know... And do it with pride".

Peter Wilson, chef Café Du Jardín.
