About the Chef

Our chef Steve Taylor has had a passion for food and cooking ever since he was a pot washer at the age of thirteen. By the time he was fifteen he was running the starters and desserts at a local restaurant. Aged seventeen, having completed a hospitality and catering course at college, he moved to London.

Over the years Steve has worked in London, Johannesburg and Nottingham, picking up new skills, experimenting with flavour and creating diverse dining experiences. He has worked everywhere from high-end hotels to village gastro pubs, conference and wedding venues to country house hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants.

Steve moved back to the Midlands to start a family, and the next chapter begun. His son Rhys Taylor, is a talented chef in his own right. United by a love of good ingredients and creative flavours, father and son have teamed up to create a new dining experience in Newark, Nottinghamshire.

The Taylors Approach

We believe good ingredients are a gift. We aim to use seasonal and locally sourced produce wherever we can – partly because it’s more sustainable, partly because it simply tastes better. We’re also proud of our efforts to reduce food waste. In a nod to the British rural tradition of thrifty eating, we make it our mission to find new and delicious ways to use every part of every ingredient.
