Stephen Harris at The Recreation

Punk rocker, turned history teacher, turned financial professional, turned proprietor-chef grew up a few miles from the Sportsman, his acclaimed pub-turned-restaurant on Britain's Kent Coast. Rather than distance himself from his surroundings and fare, Harris immersed himself in them. By remaining on his home turf, he turned the Sportsman into the UK's #1 restaurant.

Stephen will co-create a menu of 5 courses with matched beverages at The Recreation in Fitzroy. The pub was built in 1876, but has been reborn as the ultimate local brought back to life by the old-school know-how and professional fine dining experience trio of Joe Durrant, Mark Protheroe and Steven Nelson. It's bistro dining driven by French technique - but utterly unstuffy.

Please note: Some seating will be bar seating.
