Our Group Executive Head Chef Joe Fox

Joe oversees the menus at our six London restaurants and vibrant bars. Having spent the past 20 years in British and European restaurants, ranging from Michelin-starred Launceston Place to neighbourhood haunts such as HIX Soho and Petersham Nurseries, his interest in food was originally inspired by his mother. Always hosting friends and family at home in Surrey while he was growing up, her enthusiasm and happiness in the kitchen was contagious, and her love for bringing people together around the table attracted him to a career in food. 

Joe’s dishes revolve around British seasonality. Not only does he support British farming and advocate low food miles, but he believes that using produce at the height of its season is essential for the very best flavour. Joe is a big fan of traditional cooking methods and not over complicating the plate, resulting in his own modern take on classic British dishes.
