New beginnings...

“Have I gone mad? I’m afraid so. You’re entirely BONKERS. But I’ll Tell you a secret. All the best people are."

That’s the quote that we chose to put on the restaurant wall and so far it’s been a good choice. Opening The White Rabbit has been not only a huge achievement but a life changing decision.

David and I share a passion for food, we really do live and breathe it so we both thought why not take the leap into the deep end and go from working in restaurants to owning one...

But it’s not for the faint hearted ! 

When we were setting up our restaurant I honestly never thought we could both get so excited about details like napkins and hand towels, and all at the same time !

Now in the daily running of the place I’m waking up in the night wondering if tangerine and orange blossom is the way to go with a dessert… and David muttering about orders in his sleep.

I’m sure it’s these things that only go through those people’s minds that are deep in the industry, and that maybe those outside the catering world wouldn't see such details as significant. I feel that's what make David and I not only a great team but also a recipe for success here at The White Rabbit.

We care and we are definitely in deep - 'Down the Rabbit Hole' in fact... 

Among the sleepless nights dreaming of Tangerine Dream desserts, the busy days taking bookings and looking after a full restaurant, we really do appreciate that we have created not only something we are extremely proud of but it is a place that people like to be ! 

Having tables sat relaxing with food and wine whilst laughing with friends; with guests asking us why we are here and them wanting not just to eat and leave but rather be in our restaurant and share what we have created is a sensational experience... 

We only hope these experiences can be shared with many more new customers in years to come...  

We don’t plan on going anywhere !
