Head Chef/Owner - Lyle's
James is head chef/owner of Lyle's. Opened in May 2014, Lyle's gained a Michelin star in less than 18 months, was voted into the World's 50 Best Restaurants 2016 and has been in the top 10 of the UK Restaurant Awards 2 years running. His food is resolutely British, pared back, intelligent and highly seasonal.
Design excellence is something that makes our lives better, more efficient, more enjoyable and more beautiful. When something is well designed it seems impossible to consider life without it, or another possible outcome, other than what is presented to you. I feel that truly excellent design transcends fashions, it should have an idea of permanence about it.
