Their ever – changing menu combines traditional tapas with personal interpretations from Michelin starred Chef Peter Sanchez – Iglesias, whilst staying true to the vibrant comforting flavours of his hertiage.


Reimagining their much – loved restaurant, Casa will offer a contemporary, accessible, yet refined take on traditional Italian dining, acting as a sibling to Peter’s Michelin-starred Spanish institution Paso Tapas next door. The 66-cover restaurant will offer a similarly relaxed environment in which to enjoy a dynamic menu created by Peter and Executive Chef Joel Breakwell.

Dishes will be made using high quality ingredients from the very best Italian and British producers, working with many of the same local suppliers that the team have partnered with for years.
