The name of this restaurant pays homage to two Victorian lace dressers who once worked on this historic ground, Cleaver & Wake serve up sophisticated food, crafted with premium ingredients that are sourced from producers across the British Isles. The moment you enter Cleaver & Wake, the warm setting lets you know that you’re in for a treat.

At Cleaver & Wake, the team prides themselves on flawlessly executing even the most straightforward dishes, infusing them with a touch of flair to ensure a memorable meal. Both the lunch and dinner menus are thoughtfully laid out to showcase the finest seasonal produce sourced from many areas across the British Isles. The dishes are crafted with inventive pairings, always presented with a touch of flair. The kitchen team believes in the symbiotic relationship between seasonality and home grown ingredients, selecting them when they are at their very best. This approach ensures that each dish reaches its full potential, prompting a regular change in the menus with the changing seasons. Therefore, the menus you see online are just for sample ideas only.

Cleaver & Wake serves exquisite starters like miso glazed salmon with yuzu emulsion, tartare, and cucumber, or beef tartare adorned with black garlic, mushroom, confit egg, and sourdough crostini. Enjoy mains like tandoori monkfish with coriander mint chutney, mango relish, curried mussel, and monkfish bhaji, or merry field duck breast paired with orange braised chicory, roast plums, and spiced duck jus. Indulge in the mushroom and ricotta agnolotti featuring roast garlic, pine nuts, truffle, and Old Winchester. End your fabulous meal with a choice of treacle tart accompanied by orange curd and sourdough ice cream, a deliciously creamy cheese board, or chocolate cremeux with rum, caramel, banana, and honey ice cream.
