Edward, Chef Patron grew up in the Yorkshire Dales and thus has always been a passionate advocate for allowing great quality ingredients to shine through when he is cooking. As a result, his menu is heavily inspired by his love of the Great British countryside and wild food.
With 25 years of hospitality experience behind him, Edward understands the importance of supporting British farmers, which is why most of his natural products are locally sourced through his wide network of local producers, suppliers and land managers.
Edward is also widely travelled. Whenever Edward isn’t at work, his key hobbies are stalking, shooting and fishing, which means he is always thinking ahead for seasonal menus. Edward is enjoying working with the greatly experienced Head Chef Amy Thompson and her team.
Jane is a key believer that family is the heart of the restaurant, working to ensure the atmosphere reflects this belief during service. Jane has worked in the hotel industry for 20 years of her life which has taken her to work in hotels in London and the South East. Jane has been a Pescatarian since she was 18 which is made easier with her love of fresh seafood and good quality vegetarian cuisine.
Supporting Edward and Jane are their children Megan, George and Emily who play a key role in working Front of House and keeping the social media up to date. Our Whitehouses team is growing and very much part of our working family.
We look forward to sharing our journey with you.
