About us

Andrew was born in Jersey ( a long time ago), schooled there and completed 2 years at Catering College before working as one of the Chefs in 2 of the top hotels on the Island. After working in France for a spell he returned to Jersey, where he met Niki who was born just outside Oakhampton - nearly as long ago....schooled in Warwickshire and travelled to Jersey to work a summer season in a local restaurant.

Shortly after meeting, Andrew & Niki went on holiday to South Africa & stayed for 9 years! During that time they got married. Both worked in some of the top hotels and restaurants of the fairest Cape, until Niki saw the light & went to work - very successfully - for a national newspaper as a photographer.

They returned to Jersey in 1989 & over the next five years had 2 boys, Alex, now 25 & Jamie, now 22.  In 1994 they went en famille to live and work in Mauritius and over the next five years enjoyed paradise in the Indian Ocean. The sale of Lonrho forced them back to the U.K.in early 1999 and then the job of General Manager at the Nare Hotel bought Andrew and his family here to Cornwall.

Throughout their time together (27 years married January2014!) it had always been at the back of their minds to have a place of their own and finally the opportunity arose 10 years ago here at the Kings Head

The rest.....as they say.....is history!
