Restaurant Manager

My career began as a teenager, working at a local restaurant before making a life-changing move to the UK. After working my way up from waiter to restaurant management, I was given a chance to run the beautiful Lussmanns restaurant in Tring, and now run the Harpenden branch. I take special pride in the camaraderie amongst the entire restaurant staff, as well as Lussmanns’ one-of- a-kind cuisine and beautiful, historic location.

I take pride in well-balanced, awe-inspiring dishes on the Lussmanns menu and the great professional service given by our charming staff.

Head Chef

Tomasz Pogorzelski

When I was young I was curious what my grandma was cooking and I was always asking her how she prepares her food. I remember the first time my grandma let me join her, I was only 5 but it was the first time that I actually started to cook. She had an organic farm so everything she cooked was grown in her garden and she only used her own products. When I had to choose what I wanted to do in my life everyone told me to join the army, mechanic or engineer but I chose my own way and finished gastronomy school in Poland. When I came to England I started my first job in catering and I always wanted to develop my skills. I’ve been working 18 years as Head chef already in England and now in Lussmanns I am really proud that I can cook everything from scratch and use only great products, just how my grandma used to cook for me.
