Chiswick In Bloom
Bloomin’ gardens, bloomin’ fashion, bloomin’ great cocktails, bloomin’ tasty food, bloomin’ good times.
Guests joined us at 'Chiswick In Bloom’ this spring - two months of activity in collaboration with Bombay Sapphire that saw our restaurant and garden come to life to celebrate spring, and the launch of a dedicated Chiswick bar area with its own special menu.
Showcasing our home-grown seasonal produce, guests enjoyed the flavours of our spring menus across both our a la carte menu as well as a special menu that was available exclusively through the communal bar. In the restaurant, guests feasted on classics such as our slow-roasted lamb shoulder, and new menu highlights including globe artichokes with asparagus, garden herbs and pecorino, alongside a half roast chicken with sunrise potato and snow peas.
Our vibrant and utterly delicious experience, allowed our guests to revel in the flavours of our paired spring garden cocktails and garden snacks that was only available on our communal bar from September to October. Highlights included the Bombay Sapphire Garden G&T paired with Chiswick crudités and white bean hummus, the Tangerine Spritz paired with Berkshire pork terrine, mustard and preserved vegetables, the Spring Collins paired with nasturtium leaves, house-made ricotta and sunflower, and the newly launched Bombay Bramble Spritz paired with prawn popcorn, jalapeno and iceberg lettuce.
Plus, we hosted an exciting line-up of Spring Masterclasses for those with a keen interest in gardening, cocktail making or cooking.
We kicked-off our line-up with our Gardening Masterclass, taught by our Head Gardener Peter Hatfield in our garden which was an educational focus on seasonal gardening, composting, sustainability and the importance of bees in the garden. Following this, we hosted our DIY Cocktail Masterclass that was lead by one of the best Bombay Sapphire Mixologists in Sydney with our wonderful Head Sommelier Eleonore Wulf, followed by an intimate and exclusive Cooking Masterclass hosted by Matt Moran, alongside Head Chef Francois Poulard.

“I’ve always loved Chiswick in the Spring. The garden is in full bloom with peas and edible flowers out in force, the produce we have to work with is abundant and the warmer weather and longer days seep into the dining room, making you want to kick back and enjoy another drink.” says Matt Moran. “We’re inviting Sydney in to experience even more of what Chiswick has to offer this Spring. They can get their hands dirty in the garden with Pete, or brush up on their cooking and cocktail making skills in time for Spring entertaining. We’ve seen such support from our community, and this is a celebration of that support - a way to open up the restaurant to our community more than ever before.”
