For our first content creators meetup I was looking for a Central place, high-end dining, but without a stuffy setting. It had to feel cozy, just as comfortable as you’re being at home! The Great Chase nailed it! As more members started to arrive, we paired two long tables and sat together for a good four hours. We laughed, exchanged food memories and more importantly tried every single delicious dish on their menu!
What to Eat?
If you decide to visit The Great Chase more than once while you are in London, then you should not be surprised to see a different menu. Radoslaw Nitkowski, the Head Chef is always improving his recipes, trying out new

What to drink?
Aperol Spritz is my particular favourite for the summer and here at The Great Chase I got to try the alcohol-free version. I couldn’t believe it actually tastes better than the original drink, thanks to William Wragg. He is the restaurant’s cordial alchemist and a real storyteller who spins his magic to create truly unique cocktails!
PALAMINO – (Mexican favourite, reinvented) – Pink grapefruit cordial, agave syrup, lime, coconut water
ELDERFLOWER ROYALE – (fresh, floral) – Elderflower cordial, Bee’s Knees Brut, cucumber, elderflower & lemon mist
And the best is yet to come!
Another passion of Will and Rollo (one of the managers) is Tea. Their list of fine teas (courtesy of the Rare Tea Company) is three pages long and they keep adding new flavours all the time. The only question is: how long would it take to try every possible combination? I think for that task, I’d happily volunteer as tribute.
As a wine lover and I was very impressed to discover the tea has as broad a taste spectrum as wine!
