The chef

Rob's passion for cooking started from a very young age when both parents ran hospitality businesses. In his final year at culinary school he was awarded student of the year which opened the opportunity to kick start his career at Skibo Castle. 

He then moved to London and worked his way up to a junior sous chef position at Chez Bruce by the age of 19. With an opportunity for a head chef position at Duck's at Le Marche Noir he relocated to Edinburgh where he earned a Bib Gourmand and two rosettes. 

Wanting to see and experience more, Rob embarked on a journey working at 5 starred ski chalets, private villages and super yachts. 

Rob's skill levels are impressive and his determination to deliver great food all made in house is admirable.

He is now the owner/ head chef of The Lime Tree Inn in Great Ouseburn.
