Restaurant Manager

I have over thirty years experience in the hospitality industry.  I believe in going the extra mile and creating special moments for each and every customer that walks through the door.  Attention to detail is key and anticipating customer needs is so important.  I have only worked for Lussmanns for a short time but feel that the way that the staff are trained fits in perfectly with this ideal.

I also firmly believe that we should all do our best to protect the environment that we live in and am very proud to work in a restaurant whose owners have the same core values.

Head Chef

Stephen Rogers

I am a local Hertford lad, spending the majority of my life in this historic county town. I have worked for Lussmanns for the last four years, since returning from a year-long stint travelling in Australia. I moved up to senior sous chef quickly, helping out in other Lussmanns sites regularly during my first year, and was subsequently nominated for Chef of the Year.

Friends always told me when I was young that I should be a chef, and although it was never originally my intention, I found myself falling into the industry in my early twenties, after originally studying animal management at university. Strangely this background and interest in animal conservation was what influenced my decision towards joining Lussmanns: due to their strong ideals with regards to sustainability, using local produce, and the dedication to having a strong, MSC certified fish menu.
