Ormer Mayfair was launched by chef Shaun Rankin, who received a Michelin star in 2005 for his first restaurant in Jersey. With executive chef and Great British Menu 2020 finalist Kerth Gumbs at its helm, Ormer Mayfair continues this celebration in the accolades it has received since opening. Over the past four years, Kerth has put his own stamp on the menu by celebrating British cuisine with international influences. This is where his classical Le Cordon Bleu training, time in Michelin-starred kitchens, years spent learning business and managerial skills and influences from working around the world all come together, resulting in a menu that’s confident, classical, modern and playful. While the hotel that the restaurant is based in has the luxurious trappings of old-school opulence, Ormer Mayfair remains contemporary, exciting and at the forefront of London’s fine-dining scene. Kerth says that, for now, he’s focused on nurturing his team, improving the food and adapting to the struggles the hospitality industry is facing in 2020. Ormer Mayfair has been voted one of the top five restaurants in London by the Hardens Restaurant Guide 2018 and is consistently rated as one of the top 10 restaurants in London for Fine Dining on TripAdvisor.
