Introducing our AW'23

After months of development with our Chef brigade, we can finally reveal our delicious new AW 2023 menus.

Our AW Highlights

Led by our Group Executive Chef, David Ridgway, the Head Chef of Moving Venue, Alistair Riley, alongside the Executive Pastry Chef, Sarah Hartnett, our Head of Canapés, Mike Revis, and the rest of the wonderful Moving Venue chef brigade, we have created our brand-new Autumn/ Winter menus, now better than ever! As always, we have ensured our menus are sustainable, using as much locally sourced produce as possible, and this is reflected in our dishes, whilst still maintaining the finesse and flair that we at Moving Venue are known for in our menus and events. We have also added some home comforts to the colder season with contemporary twists, and we can’t wait for you to try them for yourselves.

Our menu launch began with the challenging task of creating, cooking, presenting, and photographing 32 plates in one day. We then invited some of the Moving Venue teams to taste them and learn about the ingredients and methods for creating each dish. Here are some of their highlights…

Delicata, Feta, Pomegranate


First up is our Sales Director, Ben. If you’re looking for Christmas in a starter, Ben recommends the Delicata, Feta, Pomegranate. The spiced Delicata pumpkin is roasted with sage and garlic, a whipped feta yoghurt, pomegranate, figs, toasted chickpeas, rocket salad and served with a cherry balsamic glaze. This vegetarian starter can also be altered to be vegan by replacing the feta with a hummus base.

Sea Bream, XO, Almonds


If you are looking for a fine dining fish starter, our Event Sales Coordinator, Olivia, has coined the Sea Bream, XO, Almonds as the tastiest dish. The Seabream crudo, XO dressing, pickled mooli, smoked almonds, and coriander create a delicate yet punchy fusion of flavours. This dish wouldn’t be out of place at a swanky London restaurant given its beautiful presentation.

Lamb, Cauliflower, Cabbage

Main Course

Paige, our newly appointed Head of Sales, describes her favourite dish, the Lamb, Cauliflower, Cabbage, as “utterly divine.” A modern take on the winter warmer, this dish is a duo of lamb – with a lamb shoulder Shepherd’s pie accompanied by lamb rump, served with a creamy burnt cauliflower purée, savoy cabbage, and glazed baby carrots. We know this dish will be a crowd-pleaser as we move into the colder season, and many clients are already requesting it for upcoming tastings.

Swede, Masala, Coconut

Main Course

Our Operations Director, Kim, adored the Swede, Masala, Coconut and was pleasantly surprised to find out that this dish wasn’t the traditional curry that springs to mind. The tandoori slow-roasted and incredibly sustainable swede is served with a creamy masala sauce, fragrant spiced kale, Aloo Gobi, and coconut gremolata. If you are looking for an Asian fusion with locally sourced English vegetables, this is the dish for you.

Millionaire's Caramel, Chocolate, Hazelnut


Oly, our Senior Event Sales Manager, and his self-proclaimed sweet tooth are championing the Millionaires’ Caramel, Chocolate, Hazelnut. This dessert can be adapted to suit everyone, as our incredible pastry team has made a completely vegan and gluten-free alternative. We are sure you will be as surprised as we all were that this could be possible with so much chocolate! This is a real winner.

Mulled Wine, Cranberry, Marmalade


Last but by no means least, our Head of Planning, Bethany, is preparing for the festive season after indulging herself with the Mulled Wine, Cranberry, Marmalade. Our pastry kitchen has created a dessert that is as visually beautiful as it is delicious, a boozy mulled wine mousse with spiced cranberries, blood orange marmalade, and cranberry financier. The perfect finish to your winter banquet. We cannot wait to serve these dishes, as well as our many others, to our wonderful clients in the coming months! If you’re booked in for a tasting – you’re in for a treat!
