Ben Iley


Extensively travelled and greatly experienced, Ben has spent time cooking on three different continents and his knowledge of pan-Asian cuisine is second-to-none. Now Head Chef at Restaurant EightyEight, Grantley Hall, Ben’s vision for his kitchen is to create innovative and visually-inspiring dishes without watering down cultures or doing injustice to heritage and traditions, playfully blending influences and flavours to showcase the quality of Yorkshire’s finest ingredients.

"My all-time favourite dish to eat is a Gyoza don, (pork dumplings on rice with rice vinegar and chilli oil, made by my wife.)"
