The new match day menus have been more than a year in the making and we're delighted to reveal some exciting details of what guests can expect when they dine in the new hospitality facilities within Twickenham Stadium's East Stand development for the upcoming Quilter Internationals.
The menus for the four Quilter Internationals games will change match by match. This follows the decision by Twickenham Stadium's executive head chef Thomas Rhodes, to introduce influences from each of the teams England will face into his dishes.
Rhodes has visited and hand selected farmers and producers to guarantee exacting standards and quality on each and every plate. In addition, 2-Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge will be a partner in The Lock restaurant, designing the menu and running the kitchen on match days.
