A handful of The Game Bird’s most popular main dishes will also remain on the menu, including the Chicken Kiev; Scottish Venison Wellington; The Game Bird – Roast Squab Pigeon, Buttered Turnips, Apple, Bacon Barley Risotto; and Steak & Ale Steamed Suet Pudding. 

Desserts such as Black Forest Baked Alaska for Two and Crêpes Suzette served tableside will provide the perfect end to a meal at The Game Bird.

A new seasonal cocktail list will be served from the chic Champagne bar in the restaurant, complementing the new menu; perfect for a pre-dinner aperitif.

Stuart Procter, Chief Operating Officer of the Stafford Collection, comments: “Culinary Director Ben Tish and I are delighted to be welcoming Lisa to The Game Bird. 

She creates incredible dishes at Northcote and her food ethos fits perfectly with The Stafford London.”

Lisa Goodwin-Allen notes: “I am thrilled to be working with the team at The Game Bird. Jozef and I have created an exciting new menu that truly celebrates high-quality, seasonal British produce and I look forward to my dishes being available to diners in London for the very first time.”
