Paul Welburn, who made his name working for the likes of Gary Rhodes and Richard Corrigan in London before moving onto an exec chef position with Searcys, has left the big smoke for rural Surrey. He’s taking his talents to the The Leconfield restaurant in Petworth where, as head chef, he’ll be cooking up ‘gently nostalgic British dishes with a modern twist’.

Welburn, who appeared on the Beeb’s Great British Menu in 2014, says that wherever possible his dishes will highlight British seasonal produce – both farmed and foraged.

In addition to the à la carte menu the 17th century venue offers a set lunch and dinner menu, bar snacks and cocktails in the bar and lounge, and a Sunday Roast that was ranked in the top 30 places to go for a roast in the UK by The Times.
