Stay in a Victorian townhouse in Mayfair
The Residences at The Athenaeum have officially relaunched – here’s what to expect from our exclusive apartments in Mayfair’s prestigious red-brick properties.

I’d say that the most satisfying part would be the involvement in opening a new restaurant and developing all of the different menus, from A La Carte to private dining… and also the afternoon tea concepts!
It would have to be David Bowie and Marco Pierre White, I think they would both have a lot of good stories to share, and they’d be quite fun to have as guests.
I try not to! Well at least not for myself, but I do enjoy cooking for my friends.
I was first inspired by my Mum and Dad. My Mum was a very good cook at home and I’ve got quite a big family that she would always cook for. My Dad is a farmer so we used to grow a lot of vegetables and ate a lot of the meats from the farm. I was quite young when I first started cooking, around 8 or 9 years old, I first started to make scones for my Gran. When I got into my teenage years, I would work in restaurants and pubs in the summer holidays and it really started from there!
The dish that I enjoy the most and enjoyed developing has got to be the tuna burger, it’s a different and healthier take on your average burger and there’s a massive wave in London around burgers. Also, we have a really nice cuttlefish dish with tomatoes, chickpeas, chilli and aioli, it’s a really warming, seasonal dish. We have quite an extensive menu which changes seasonally four times a year, and the whole point of having this massive menu is that hopefully, whatever part of the world you come from, you’ll have something to your taste.
