Sharing dishes served to each table are a wonderful way to enjoy a nice relaxed, informal meal with fellow guests. You may just like one or two sharing courses – a sharing starter to get everyone talking, or a fun sharing dessert – or go the whole way and enjoy a relaxing, laid-back 3 course sharing feast.


Sharing starters are always a feast for the senses, adding a wonderful sense of theatre and fun to the start of the meal. The perfect ice-breaker for guests to start talking!

We have put together some themed ideas for your sharing starter, but please feel free to choose your favourite dishes from any of these suggestions. We recommend a selection of three to five dishes.
