We are inviting all our wonderful customers to take a trip down memory lane and send us suggestions of your most memorable dishes crafted by Simon Gueller, during the last 30 years.

Simon will be rolling back the years for his ‘Greatest Hits’ menu throughout October and November every Wednesday and Thursday evening as well as Friday and Saturday lunch times


This has all the ingredients of a fun retrospective look at some of his signature dishes and Simon and the team are incredibly excited to hear about the dishes that customers remember – and the great memories they conjure up.

Menu suggestions can include anything that you have enjoyed at one of Simon's restaurants Millers, Rascasse, Guellers and, of course, The Box Tree.

We can’t guarantee we can recreate every one of them, but we will do our best to showcase a wide variety. We may also use some of your comments in our publications and social media.

We look forward to hearing from you!
