 Chef Proprietor Clare Smyth

Core is the debut restaurant of Clare Smyth, the first and only female chef to run a restaurant with three Michelin Stars in the UK.

Clare grew up on a farm in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Since moving to England at the age of 16, she has worked with a uncompromising devotion to her craft, training in some of the most celebrated kitchens in the world. In her time as Chef Patron at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Hospital Road, her many awards included 10/10 in the Good Food Guide, five AA Rosettes and an MBE for services to the hospitality industry. Clare also won the Cateys Chef of the Year Award 2016 and Michelin Female Chef 2017.


Core is the debut restaurant of Clare Smyth, the first and only female chef to run a restaurant with three-Michelin stars in the UK. It celebrates modern fine dining - elegant and informal in relaxed surroundings with an emphasis on natural, sustainable food, sourced from the Uk's most dedicated farmers and food producers. 

The food concentrates on a constantly evolving menu consisting on a choice of three, five or ten-course tasting menu. Dishes are simple and beautiful with Clare seeking out the best of British produce with a passion to delight and share her curiosity and love of artisanal food.

The interior design centres around a colour palette of stem green, aubergine, almond milk, copper and burnished gold, with a window overlooking a feature living wall. Seats 54 covers in total.
