Served with herb-roasted potatoes and sautéed red onion, confit cherry tomatoes and garlicky tenderstem broccoli, this Gruyère Cheese & Spinach Tart is our pick from Cosy Club’s mouthwatering autumn menu.

Meet the Bosco Incantato (‘enchanted wood’), the new autumn dessert at Carluccio’s, inspired by legendary founder Antonio and his love of foraging for fungi in the autumn woods. Vanilla and chocolate ice cream, chocolate and hazelnut sauce, pistachios, hazelnuts, fresh raspberries and panettone crumb – what’s not to love?
Like a pizza, but folded in half to keep all the flavours safely sealed within – who doesn’t love a calzone? Pizza Express certainly do – they’ve introduced two brand new flavours to their menu this autumn. The ´Nduja, with its spicy ´nduja and smoky pepperoni, is your best bet for a fuller flavour, while the vegan Verdure, with roasted peppers and aubergine, will help you on your way to five a day in style.
Wahaca are fully embracing autumn’s seasonal arrivals. Feast your eyes on these moreish vegan Butternut Squash Tacos, which come served with a vibrant herb and cashew nut mole. Other autumn delights include a new Crispy Cauliflower tossed in buttermilk, and a Prawn Cocktail Tostada served with a beautifully smoky chipotle mayo.
Share the warmth, serve the pasta and pour the wine with Prezzo's new autumn set menu. It's full of simple, hearty and familiar Italian dishes, that the whole family will love tucking into. For starters, try the new Spicy Pizza Bites filled with garlic, Italian cheese and a kick of chilli, before twirling a fork through the Spaghetti Meatball Al Forno, which is packed with mushrooms, rosemary, balsamic onions and pomodoro sauce.
