Roger Saul's new Restaurant

Food and drink

Enter stage right

Known for reimagining the classic 'It' bag season after season, Mulberry founder Roger Saul plans to shake up the restaurant scene with an experiential new pop-up created from reclaimed movie props.
Stage 1 opens at Kilver Court (Saul's collection of shops, tea room and gardens) in Somerset on 16 November, and is designed by Drèsd founders Lynn and Duncan McFarlane, the couple behind SOHO House Group's 'Re-Cre8' clubs.
'Stage 1 came out of an idea to reuse British film set scrap that otherwise would be junked,' says Saul. 'We have set out to create an experience where you come in from behind the scenes, past flats, cameras and paint pots, through the greenroom and onto the set.
'The 'set' will be a 19th-century railway waiting room (think Le Train Bleu at Gare du Nord, Paris) complete with platform and coach. You then enter a grand ballroom, all of which has been entirely created out of props and pieces from British-made films.'
The menu, devised by Simon Davis of Jacks Bar & Brasserie, in Bristol, will feature wintry dishes such as venison and juniper pie, and pavlova of plums cooked in mulled wine, with much of the food coming from Saul's own organic farm, Sharpham Park.
In January, the restaurant will be dismantled, and items auctioned off in support of The Teenage Cancer Trust.
To book, contact Stage 1, Kilver Court, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, England (; Open Tuesday-Sunday.
