​As headline sponsor of this year's Food Connections Festival in Bristol, First Great Western​ is presenting a one-off dining event showcasing some of the best seafood to be found in the West Country, hosted by Mitch Tonks, here at The Spiny Lobster on Wednesday 6th May.

Mitch works with FGW to create the Pullman First Class Dining Menus, and on the evening of the 6th, he and FGW chefs will recreate a menu celebrating the new seafood that is now being served on board. All of which is sourced from producers and suppliers near to where FGW tracks run throughout the South West.

 The evening's menu will start with a glass of Prosecco, followed by

- Gurnard escabeche with olives & celery

- Roasted scallops with fennel butter

- Soft polenta with mixed seafood & garlic

- Grilled Dover sole with fennel gratin

- Olive oil cake with grappa syrup

 Mitch will introduce and chat about each course, the food available on board the Pullman, his ongoing development work with FGW and its commitment to sourcing local produce.

 Doors open at 7.15pm for an 8pm start. The menu is £50p/head* pre-booking is advisable.
