June at W5
Lee Cadden has returned to Charlotte’s as Head Chef at W5 and he brings his beautifully individual culinary style to the menu this month. Lee’s delicious new additions showcase the best of nature and use much lighter ingredients to complement the season. The new menu is filled with exotic and exquisite dishes, pioneered by Lee, such as Baked Aubergine w/ Cashew Nut, Creme Fraiche & Sourdough Toast which proves to be both unusual and succulent and Butter Poached Potato w/ Berkswell Cheese. The menu is trendier, tastier and more modern and we thoroughly advise you relax on our champagne terrace and enjoy it!
May at W5
The road to summer is here and our chefs at W5 are exploring this through a gentle move towards colder and more refreshing dishes. There is a strong salad trend throughout our new menu and dishes such as our La Latteria Burrata w/ Summer Squash and Pumpkin Seed Pesto and our Grilled Salmon Fillet w/ Cherry Tomato & Potato Salad exude a deliciously light and fresh feel. Our chefs said that their inspiration for the new menu came from what they imagined eating at the perfect barbeque and we do hope you pop in and agree!

Our chefs cite ‘quintessential British food’ as the essence behind the new dishes, noting that Spring is a very inspirational time to create a new menu as there is an incredible explosion of new produce at this time of year.
