We are delighted to announce that our team of talented young chefs is now being led by the celebrated Head Chef, Lee Groves.
Lee brings to the mix his own unique style and talent acquired and honed by 23 years in the industry. Most recently at Seagrass in St Ives where he was awarded Best Head Chef 2012 by Cornwall Life magazine, semi-finalist South West Chef of the year and finalist Best Chef – Food magazine 2012. Well-remembered for his semi-finalist appearance on Masterchef the Professionals in 2012 Lee has since spent his time perfecting his own brand and style of cooking.
Lee’s arrival has enthused the team and he is pushing forward the already fantastic food offering at Restaurant Mount Haven. Lee loves to take well-established dishes and give them a new life, for example cooking fish with a blow-torch rather than pan-frying and adding different textures to make the food more tantalising on the palate.
As we spent the winter redesigning the restaurant, Lee’s arrival is perfect to launch the new, softer and more romantic space in which to enjoy the great food. Reinforcing our place in the culinary landscape of Marazion and the Penzance area. Read a recent fantastic review in The Cornishman.
We are showcasing an exhibition of photographs of Newlyn by Baxter Bradford in the restaurant. As the fish is delivered fresh from the port of Newlyn daily it perfectly complements what’s on your plate!
Mount Haven’s focus moving forward to is enhance even further our reputation for quality and personal, relaxed service. With Lee on board to drive this through Mount Haven will open for Xmas and the New Year in 2013. No doubt Lee will be developing some novel and mouth-watering twists on the traditional Xmas fayre to make Christmas at Mount Haven Hotel one to remember.
