Using Crane pans to prepare and present the meal, the Lyle’s team will be serving a special menu on the Very Good & Proper table, designed to be shared communally by up to 10 people at each service. Diners will be invited to dig in and share fantastic food from a special set menu, using plates by Owen Wall and ceramicist Skye Corewijn. Electric Daisy Flower Farm will be supplying some of their beautiful seasonal flowers.

Bring your friends, family or colleagues or come along on your own to share great food from an exclusive menu with people you haven’t met yet!

Crane Cookware cast iron pans have been created by product designer Barnaby Tuke together with food writer Charmain Ponnuthurai.  The Crane range is made from vitreous enameled sand-cast iron, and is produced by one of France’s longest-established foundries.  The cookware has a modernist elegance with functionality at the core, whilst retaining a pared-back aesthetic that will not date.

The table and chairs have been designed and made by ‘Very Good & Proper’. Their modern and elegant tables and chairs feature linear designs, creating simplicity whilst creating high visual impact all at once.

This special service, perfect for anyone visiting the festival, will be available for lunch and dinner on Tuesday 22nd September; lunch and dinner on Wednesday 23rd September, and the final lunch on Thursday 24th September and will cost £29 per head for lunch and £44 per head for dinner. Each lunch service will begin at 1.00 pm to ensure that everyone is seated and ready to eat together.  Each dinner service will be at 7.00 pm.

Bookings can be made now through Lyle’s on 020 3011 5911. Phone reservations only.
