The Story

Unique Approach

The story of Dinner began in the late 90s with Heston Blumenthal’s fascination with historic gastronomy. The savoury ice creams of the late 1800s, the theatre of the Tudor dining experiences and the dishes of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland all resonated with his unique approach to cooking.

A Library of Inspiration

After researching 14th century cookbooks such as those by the royal chefs of King Richard II to Lewis Carroll’s flights of fancy; working with food historians, to tapping into the worlds of the British Library in London and the teams at Hampton Court Palace, the home of King Henry VIII in Kew – the very modern dining experience of Dinner by Heston Blumenthal was born.

Edible History

Dinner By Heston Blumenthal is inspired by the creative and imaginative cooking of Britain’s Gastronomic past and dedicated to reimagining those recipes and more to bring new, exciting and playful experiences to the diners of today.

Our Restaurants

Since the restaurant's focus is on dishes inspired by historic British gastronomy, I searched for a name that had a bit of history but was also fun. ‘Dinner’ fit the bill perfectly.

Our Chef

Heston’s fascination with historic recipes began in early 2000. His curiosity has resulted in a book and a dedicated restaurant - Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. We continue to create new dishes and drinks playfully inspired by the ingenuity of historic events in addition to ingredients and recipes from British heritage.
