A Seven course tasting menu with the option of matched wines will be on offer for the evening.
Tables of 2, 4, 8 and 10 are available and spaces are limited.
Notable awards for Roger and his restaurant the Harrow at Little Bedwyn:
AA England Restaurant of the Year 2011
Awarded with Michelin Star for the 6th Year in a row 2011
Awarded 3 AA Rosettes for the 7th Year in a row 2011
A recent review in the Times Newspaper:
There are at least three dishes on the menu that are as good as anything I have ever eaten. The first, a scallop, foie gras and black pudding construction with a caramelised sweet wine; the next, a tuna carpaccio of improbable pinkness, wrapped in nori; and the last, a squid and belly of pork confection, oozing salt and fat and sweetness and everything else you’re not allowed to enjoy eating these days.
Profile of Roger Jones
THE HARROW AT LITTLE BEDWYN, WILTSHIRE
Roger spent his early career working for The British Government and Royal Family and was the youngest Chef to run State Banquets at the tender age of 21, he also cooked for Mrs Thatcher at 10 Downing Street.
Roger gained his first Michelin Star in 2006, which he has retained every year since. The Harrow was The AA Restaurant of The Year for 2011 and has had 3 Rosettes for 6 years. The Harrow has been a breeding ground for many youngsters, who have gone on to work at The Fat Duck, The Dorchester, The Ritz, and overseas.
Roger’s passion for food is matched by his on-going love affair with wine. He sits on the Decanter World Wine Awards representing Australia, contributes to various Wine Journals and consults numerous bodies. He is also a Chevalier Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne, which basically means he drinks lots of champagne.
You may wonder why you do not see Roger on TV.
This is probably due to his constant support he gives back to the industry and his prolific charity work. Roger supports many Charities and helped raise over £200,000.00 for his chosen charities in 2011; SCOPE (by running the London Marathon tied to 49 others and achieving a World Record) and Ty Hafan, a hospice for terminally ill children.
This year Roger will also be supporting Swindon Carers.
Roger works with Westminster and Swindon Catering Colleges as well as visiting schools all over the South West and was made Vice Chairman of The Master Chefs of Great Britain in January 2012.
Roger does however still have some time left to support Welsh Rugby and rarely misses a game, home or away.
