Chris Simpson joins the team at Pensons after having worked with Nathan Outlaw for seven years in Cornwall as Head Chef at Restaurant Nathan Outlaw which had two Michelin stars. He then moved on to Gidleigh Park as Executive Head Chef, and was part of the team that won a Michelin Star there. Chris and the team will continue to build on the quality of our food and service and maintain our ethos of growing much of our own produce, sourcing locally and commitment to sustainability.

“Utterly sublime on all counts” – Lee Westcott’s follow-up to The Typing Room in Bethnal Green is quite a step, both physically and spiritually, from London’s East End, occupying a “beautifully designed” newly converted barn (on a 1,200 acre Worcestershire estate), which opened in January 2019. All reports on it are a paean of praise to its “honest but elegant” approach and “staff who all work hard to ensure the food is the star of the show”. “You start out with superbly home-cooked bread and then the interesting and accomplished dishes”“mainly locally sourced” or foraged and “full of unusual, subtle flavours”, “all brilliantly married together – just keep coming, using all types of ingredients (e.g. pig’s head with smoked apple potato) but not pretentiously”. “The scallop, yeast apple and monk’s beard dish and asparagus with wild garlic veloute are the stuff of legend”. “It deserves a lot of attention” (and received some from Michelin in October 2019 when it was quickly awarded its first star).

"An unforgettable lunch; seasonal and ultra-local ingredients married to fantastic textures and presentation to match. Highlight was the dill, apple and sheep's yoghurt pudding which Lee has brought over from his old haunt in London. Amazing value for three courses, reasonably priced wine menu and cracking service, especially from the sommelier who couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Better get bookings in now that it has acquired a Michelin star."

"Beautiful setting. Fantastic staff. Inspirational food. The best dinner we have had in years. Lee Westcott is a bona fide genius. The restaurant is still relatively unknown but that will surely not be the case for long. A must for all food lovers."
