Mortimer’s chef, Wayne Smith, creates superlative food at Mortimers, in Ludlow, and has an astounding pedigree. He did a three-month stage at La Tante Claire, Pierre Koffmann’s legendary London restaurant, before travelling to Australia then returning to the UK to cook for multiple Michelin star winner David Cavalier.
From there, Wayne moved to central London and spent 18 months with the two Michelin star Tom Aitkens. And then came Ludlow, where he replaced Claude Bosi at Overton Grange, spending almost five years there.
He briefly moved away, working for the Queen of Brunei at Stapleford Park, before opening Bentleys in Dublin, for Richard Corrigan, then Mortimers.
Along with his wife, Tamsin, and trusted team, Wayne and the Mortimers family are able to deliver to the highest standard.
