Rosendale Design oversaw the redesign of the restaurant, celebrating the original 17th-century features of the building, while also incorporating the clean lines of marble and glass, and the natural hues of leather and traditional wood paneling, combined with touches of floral upholstery throughout.
Cabinets to one side of the main dining room show what will be served on the menu, including the game and steaks, as well as the lobster and range of oysters.
The Stafford is working with West Contemporary as its art partner, bringing a regularly changing exhibition of contemporary works to The Game Bird. The first installation includes exclusively commissioned pieces by artists including Chris Moon, Ruth Fox and Carne Griffiths, and includes “Afternoon Tea with The Queen” by Carne Griffiths, which was hand-finished on site during the launch of the restaurant.
The Game Bird is now one of F&B venues of The Stafford, which also include private dining rooms, 380-year-old working wine cellars and the American Bar.
