Come join us in our annual harvest dinner at the new Chef’s Table restaurant at Kensington Riverside Inn. Chef Theo Yearman has been earning rave reviews, including from food critic John Gilchrist a 9/10 rating and the comment “the food is exceptional, the best meal I’ve enjoyed so far this year.”

We have pulled a 2000 Guigal Hermitage from our cellar as the anchor wine at the dinner and Chef Theo has created a feast around this.  Come join us for a feast!

    Great event overall and if you haven’t had a chance to eat at the Chef’s Table yet, then you should and soon. That Hermitage 2000 from the Grand Cru Cellar was a real treat too. For those with this wine in their cellar, you can enjoy it now, but it will easily last another 5+ years.
