Our food story
We don’t just serve food, we present it. We’re passionate and creative with our delivery and go to great lengths to deliver an outstanding dining experience.
We’re proud to create exceptional menus that use seasonal and local ingredients and work with our local producers to bring you the best and freshest produce. As part of our food story, we have created our ‘Rooted in Food’ stamp of quality. When customers see this stamp, they can be sure that our menus have been created using only the very best local and seasonal produce. This concept is visible across the Imago portfolio and gives each venue its own unique identity and value proposition, whilst retaining that stamp of quality that you can expect from any Imago venue.
