Leading Our Teams

Our talented Chef Patron, Gareth Rayner, has recently moved to Norfolk eager to do justice to the beautiful bounty available on our doorstep. Gareth is a warm, experienced and innovative chef, enjoying nothing more than encouraging his team to create beautiful food. He champions the very best British produce and wherever possible sourcing locally whether from the land or the shore or the sea.
