Join Mark Sargeant & Ben Tish For Dinner At The Game Bird

Join restauranteur Mark Sargeant for a night of five-course feasting at The Game Bird this month

Ready for a fabulous fine dining fix? On 23 November, The Game Bird will welcome the highly-acclaimed chef Mark Sargeant into the kitchen to host an exclusive dinner as part of their ongoing guest chef series.

Best known for his restaurants in Kent, Mark’s venues include Rocksalt and The Smokehouse in Folkestone, the Wife of Bath in Wye, as well as a pub in Ickham, The Duke William.

One very busy man, Mark also recently launched Sargeant’s Mess at the iconic Tower of London and is also Chef Director at the Great Northern Hotel.


A familiar face to The Stafford, he’s also a close friend to Culinary Director Ben Tish –  the two worked closely at Oliver Peyton’s Mayfair restaurant Coast in the 1990s, alongside Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton. Mark’s menus are always built on simple British dishes, with seasonal ingredients carefully sourced and cooked beautifully.
