Leading chef Adam Jackson has joined the multiple award winning Grays Court Hotel in York – and it looks like a match made in foodie heaven!
Adam has great history in York and the surrounding area.
He played a pivotal role in The Black Swan at Oldstead gaining its Michelin star in 2012 before winning numerous awards with his restaurant The Park in Marmadukes Townhouse Hotel just off Bootham.
He joined the Feversham Arms in Helmsley as executive chef in 2020, before signing up with Grays Court this spring.
York’s leading food writer Ben Thorpe, of York On A Fork, said: “The return of a chef of Adam’s calibre to York can only be a good thing for the city’s food scene.
“Grays Court is truly one of the most beautiful buildings in the city and it will be a real joy to see that splendour reflected in the restaurant offering there.
“The whole country’s hospitality scene has obviously been through a tough time over the last year but York is well placed to bounce back. This is an appointment that’s only going to broaden the city’s appeal and bring in visitors seeking the best food Yorkshire has to offer.”
It’s another coup for the Grade I listed Grays Court, which won a Michelin Plate in the 2021 guide for its restaurant, after scooping best small hotel of the year last year in the VisitEngland Awards and Visit York Tourism Awards.
“While his move to The Feversham Arms in Helmsley was undoubtedly a good fit and successful despite the strictures of lockdowns, there’s a sense of coming home with Adam joining Grays Court,” Ben said.
“I can’t wait to enjoy a meal there!”
And Adam has already started sharing some of his creations on Twitter, and they look truly mouthwatering.
He is now looking for a chef de partie to join him and the Bow Room restaurant team – which, he says, is “a great opportunity to work within a passionate team striving for perfection”.
