Who’s in the kitchen?
Michelin trained Head Chef Jon joined the Bear earlier this year, to continue to enhance our refined food offer and our love for Sundays. After being inspired by Nigel Howarth on the Great British Menu – For his 21st birthday Jon chose a visit Northcote Manor for dinner with his mum, over a trip away with his friends. Jon was in awe of the life-changing hospitality him and his mum received that night. “His mum was treat like a queen”. The experience instantly motivated Jon to want to be able make this level of service and food accessible by him through a career.
He introduced himself to the chefs and was given a tour of the kitchen. Hearing stories of their rise to the top and the work required to be successful, Jon’s passion shone through.
He began his apprenticeship at Northcote Manor the next day.
The rest is history.
Should you choose to leave us here at The Bear – there is nothing better than take a stroll down to Painshill Park. The 18th Century gardens offer something for everyone in a tranquil setting away from the hustle and bustle of the high street. Enjoy a visit to the crystal grotto, the Temple of Bacchus, the Gothic Tower, or a simple stroll around the lake. This is the perfect place to burn off a family lunch!
How do we get there?
Cobham & Stoke d’Abernon railway station is just a 20 minute stroll from The Bear. Take a walk down by Cobham mill, through the leafy suburbs of the village due south of the pub to reach the station. There are also regular busses from the high street that connect us to Esher and Surbiton.
