The Queensberry Hotel and Olive Tree Restaurant's Story
Christopher Cleghorn has been Head Chef at the Olive Tree Restaurant since February 2013. His cooking has continually garnered incredible praise and recognition; he was awarded 3 AA rosettes in under 9 months and in October 2018 he was awarded his first Michelin star.
From his first professional kitchen at The Crown at Whitebrook to the Fat Duck in Bray, Chris has filled his career with experiences at the highest level. His mentor for many years, Michael Caines, was the driver behind Chris’ development whilst at Gidleigh Park, holder of 2 Michelin Stars. Chris worked with Michael as Senior Sous Chef before joining the Olive Tree Restaurant in as Head Chef.
After such success, now is not the time to rest on his laurels – his focus on his relationship with local suppliers and his commitment to seasonality in his menus is undeniable. What will the future hold? If the popularity of the Olive Tree’s SIX and NINE tasting menus is anything to go by, the future looks very exciting indeed.
