Head Chef – Nigel Mendham
‘British through and through’
Born in Norfolk, United Kingdom, Nigel Mendham is proud of his home roots and has a passion for great British food.
Nigel is no stranger to playing a major role in the kitchen at some of the UK’s top restaurants, and spent the early years of his career working in red star country houses around the British Isles - from the south coast to the Lake District. Nigel has worked at South Lodge, Stapleford Park and The Samling Hotel and prior to his work at The Samling Hotel, Nigel was Senior Sous Chef at the Lygon Arms Hotel in the Cotswolds, where he headed up the team with Martin Blunos, the 2 Michelin star chef, refining his skills in the kitchen and moulding Nigel into the chef he is today.
The all-day dining concept of GBR takes Nigel’s philosophy on food back to its roots; working with core ingredients meticulously prepared bringing out the flavours of each ingredient. Finding the perfect balance between seasonally inspired dishes and those Great British favourites, Nigel’s cuisine is simply, British food at its best.
Located in the heart of London’s West End, at no. 36 Little St. James Street, GBR presents a fresh, new addition to the well-loved restaurants of St. James and a chance for Mayfair diners to enjoy an all-day dining experience in a great atmosphere, offering simple dishes cooked brilliantly within an extraordinary space in true British style.
