Restaurant Story is Tom’s flagship restaurant and home. Situated close to London Bridge, it opened its doors five years ago in April 2013. To celebrate 5 years of opening, Story underwent a full refurbishment reopening to the public in May 2018 with a new menu concept and stunning interiors.
Simply put, Story serves a tasting menu of delicate, masterful dishes inspired and led by the British seasons and the very best produce available.
Each course tells a story: it could be inspired by a moment in Tom’s life or the provenance of an ingredient. The menu is served in an intimate, 10-table restaurant by a team that Tom has built around him throughout his career.
The Lickfold Inn was originally built in 1460 in a pretty hamlet now known at Petworth in West Sussex. Tom and his team have lovingly restored the building to create a cosy and tranquil pub on the lower floor, with a comfortable, refined dining room upstairs.
Tom and his Head Chef, Graham Squire, work closely together to create a menu of refined, seasonal dishes. Wherever possible, Graham sources local produce and treats it with classic techniques for an elegant and and varied menu.
