“I’m really looking forward to returning to Wilderness again this year. It combines some of the most exciting chefs and restaurants, with music, the arts and the great outdoors. It’s a very special weekend and I can’t wait to bring a taste of The French House to the festival on Saturday.”  Neil Borthwick

Returning to the Chef’s Table once more, the “highly reputable” (according to Grace Dent) Neil Borthwick will be serving up a hearty 6 course tasting menu for this intimate table of just 26 diners.

Born in Edinburgh, Borthwick has trained his skills through an array of prestigious names from The Connaught, Maison Pic and The Square, to name but a few, collecting an impressive portfolio of gleaming reviews and the title of Nestle Toque D’Or winner in 2000 to boot. His reputation flourished under the wing of Michel Bras, when he worked as sous chef in Bras’ iconic French establishment. Having then headed up the kitchen at Merchant Tavern, Borthwick has picked up the interests, and forks, of even more noted palates of the food biz, impressing the likes of Raymer, Dent and Maschler, gaining him fully booked evenings week to week.

His latest direction has Borthwick returning to “proper good food that [he] love[s] to eat”, as he has taken to the stove of The French House, Soho. The grade II listed building still holds all the charm you’d imagine from a French restaurant and English pub, especially as its run by Lesley Lewis, “probably one of the last proper landladies of London”. Expect delicious, comfort food at its finest, from France, to London, to you.
