Kevin, and his kitchen brigade believe in utilising the abundance of high quality local produce, from handmade cheese and home cured meats to Lakeland’s famous lamb and salmon. The team harmonise traditional produce with innovative influences to meet each new season.
During your stay you can enjoy our seasonal menu, which offers wonderful fresh and locally sourced dishes and guests who have a food-intolerance or other dietary requirements (eg. diabetic, celiac, vegan etc.) are also well catered for at Rothay Garden.
Prior notification on booking is always helpful, thank you.
Welcoming our New Executive Head Chef to the team!
We are proud to announce the arrival of our new Executive Head Chef Kevin Semple (but for those of you who are regulars at Rothay we are proud to let you know that Adrian Kneeshaw is still with us as Head Chef)
Kevin comes to us with a vast amount of experience and is delighted to be able to offer his culinary delights here at Rothay.
Kevin started his career 22 years ago, as a pot wash in his local pub back home in Dumbarton. He has spent the past 10 years in the Channel Islands plying and developing his skills in various properties including Senior Sous in the 5-star Grand Hotel Jersey, in the neighbouring island of Guernsey, as Executive Chef of the 4-star Duke of Richmond, and their sister property of the 5-star Old Government House, where using fresh local produce was key and to the highest quality.
We look forward to seeing the star quality Kevin will bring to our Rothay menus!
