Black Swan at Oldstead

Details

'The Black Swan at Oldstead is a restaurant with rooms created by The Banks family who have lived and farmed around Oldstead for centuries. Their passion for the land and it's seasons is real and to them The Black Swan is not just a place of work, but a way of life.

Head Chef Tommy Banks and his team have held a Michelin Star for 2 years and are renowned for having developed a unique style.

The cooking is simple, but bold in it's simplicity. The food is all about ingredients - a carrot is valued just as highly as a fillet of beef. Each ingredient is treated individually and all with the same affection. There is an “Oldstead” style which goes well beyond the kitchen, an obvious example of which is the new home-made drinks list which has fresh juices, cordials, liqueurs and cocktails made using home-grown and foraged ingredients.

Another major development is the new 2 acre kitchen garden adjoining The Black Swan. The intention is to grow really special produce and be largely self-sufficient by focusing the menu around home-produced vegetables, salad, herbs, mushrooms and fruit.

Tommy's blog gives a unique behind-the-scenes insight into the latest developments at The Black Swan at Oldstead. https://tommybanks.wordpress.com
