Courtyard Design by Yinka Ilori

On entering our open-air courtyard, visitors will be immersed in a vibrant, colourful and kaleidoscopic setting created by British-Nigerian artist and designer, Yinka Ilori.

Filling the courtyard, Ilori has designed a series of brightly coloured, interlinking outdoor seating booths, where groups of between two and six friends and family can gather for Jimmy’s Pop-Up food, and indulge in a delicious range of menus as well as delectable summer drinks.
