What makes our summer tasting menu special?
At No 1 Call Lane, experience a ripening summer from first blush to blackberry season. Even if it’s drizzly and drab outside, our menu is guaranteed to take you to a time and place: those heady days of summer in Yorkshire, England’s finest county.
For £30 per person, linger a while and taste your forever summer over six fresh, exciting courses of drinks and accompanying bites.
Your summer experience begins with crisp apple and refreshing cucumber with absinthe and gin, then hits summer fruits and flowers at their height of sweetness.
You’ll compare soft and sharp elderflower and gooseberry notes over a base of sweet blanco tequila, then move with the season to heady lavender scents, bubbly prosecco and fresh blueberry.
Time for some old-school warmth and spice: Yorkshire rhubarb gin is paired with an invigorating kick of ginger, before rich blackberry, musky violet and indulgent black cherry vodka draw your summer evening in.
Finally… what would a British summer be without strawberries and cream? Your six-course experience finishes on the classic to end all classics. And we’ve found a way to improve on perfection, if we do say so ourselves.
Serving this fruity treat in a glass with vanilla vodka deepens the strawberries’ natural sweetness and adds a whole new dimension to our favourite summer dessert. Classically British, just a little boozier. Who could argue with that?
