“However, with restrictions being lifted gradually, we wanted to offer something to our many loyal customers who have been urging us to start cooking again.

“I have designed the menu so that it is very simple to reheat and serve at home, and I hope that many dads will be able to enjoy their special day with a gastronomic treat.”

It can be ordered via www.rogerhickmansrestaurant.com/fathers-day and customers will pay by card, before being offered a slot for contactless collection.
