Start with a drink in the cocktail lounge overlooking the garden then head past hanging meats and colourful jars of foraged produce into the elegant dining room. Jordan Bailey calmly leads the chefs in the open kitchen, while his wife heads the delightful service team – and their infectious pride radiates through all who work for them.
Originally from Cornwall, Jordan worked at the Elephant and Sat Bains, before heading off to Norway, where he quickly rose through the ranks to become head chef at Three-Starred Maaemo. He brings with him overwhelming passion, a great understanding of flavours, and supreme craftsmanship, resulting in superbly balanced, original dishes with real depth of flavour. The 18+ labour-intensive courses are all very different and make good use of preserved and fermented ingredients sourced from around Ireland.
