Jon is Head Chef at The Blue Lion Inn, East Witton, nestled in the heart of Wensleydale. The Inn’s real ale bar with its log fire and cosy atmosphere, large sweeping settle and sturdy oak tables provide an English pub setting for you to sit back and really relax in. Take in the Inn’s famous cuisine, which is chalked up on menu boards ready for your taste buds to be tantalised.
Whilst Jon would not class himself as a new kid on the block, he’s new to the cooking and demonstration scene, making for an exciting, fresh face to the chef circuit. He comes with a great pedigree, having begun his career at 18 in the town of Market Harborough as the youngest licensee in the country. From there he has grown his skills, through classic French training, moving on to work at the Manor House, Middlesbrough, where as head chef, he gained two rosettes. Before arriving as Head Chef at the Blue Lion, Jon worked at the Cleveland Tontine and Gisborough Hall with Provence Inns.
