Meet the Chef - Rob Mason

Chef at the 1919 Restaurant

Rob Mason takes the helm in our kitchen, and for good reason. Having worked his way up the ranks in some of the UK’s most innovative establishments, Rob now brings his flair and flavour pairings to 1919 Restaurant. His menu is heartfelt and instinctive, led by using top quality, locally sourced and seasonal ingredients.

“It’s all about keeping it simple and letting the ingredients do the talking,” says Rob. “Tasty food full of flavour that all comes together on the plate, combining the best quality meat or fish with indulgent sauces and seasonal produce.”

Pickling and fermenting to preserve food is a big part of Rob’s cooking style, using the nature around him to enhance some truly classic local flavours. The raw garlic growing in the hotel’s front garden is diffused in oil and the flowers are pickled for use to enhance the menu throughout the year. Rob is planning to create a kitchen garden so his team can grow their own vegetables and herbs, which is an exciting part of bringing our 2AA Rosette 1919 Restaurant to the next level.
