Welcome to Longrain
Longrain is Scott Pickett’s vibrant modern Thai restaurant, housed in an expansive converted horse stable from the 1900s. Inspired by a relaxed, communal eating philosophy, the menu is made up of shared dishes to be enjoyed on communal dining tables – banquet style. Complementing the fresh, punchy signature dishes, Longrain offers an abundance of Thai-inspired cocktails.
Our royal dinner with distinguished guest Tom Parker Bowles, son of Queen Camilla, is this Wednesday. Last chance to book.
