The Emporium of Imagination
A Peculiar Tea was created by Chef Gemma Austin as an escape from reality and the stresses of adult life. Known to her friends as a female Peter Pan, Gemma loves the magic of children's imaginations and uses food to make her guests feel a sense of nostalgia and playfulness.
Gemma states, 'The kitchen is my playground. To me, professional kitchens shouldn't be full of shouting and anger; it's a place for family and creating something wonderful. Food should be fun. We spend 13 hours a day in the kitchen, why not enjoy it.'
As a restaurant, we are incredibly passionate about sustainability and animal welfare. We operate a no waste policy in our kitchen and do not cook foods we believe are over-farmed or unnecessary to eat. Therefore, you will never find foods on our menu such a Foie Gras, Eel or Lobster. We only serve the best British and Irish Meat and use local suppliers for all our fresh ingredients.
