Successful London Restauranteur of 30 years, Antony Griffith Harris, along with partner, former actress and PR Stacey C. Elder are set to bring tantalising food to this beautiful part of the Cotswolds.
Antony has spent extensive time in the restaurant trade, having opened his first venue, ‘The Canal Brasserie’ a much sought after destination in West London in 1987. Which became a finalist in The Timeout - ‘Best Modern British Restaurant’ awards. In 1998 he took over the eclectic ‘First Floor Restaurant and Private Dining Rooms’ in fashionable Notting Hill. This went on to win many accolades for exquisite food and beautiful decor.
Antony will reunite with Head Chef, Nicholas Anderson, to whom Antony gave his first Head Chef role as a young up and coming Chef. Having worked harmoniously together for four years, Nick went on to own and run two extremely successful restaurants, where he achieved 3 AA Rosettes, 6/10 Good Food guide and was a two time Michelin Star winner. Nick brings with him his wife, Kate Anderson, a passionate Sous Chef with a gift for pastries, artisan breads and homemade ice cream.
Together, our aim is to bring country fine dining to the Cotswolds. The menu will revolve around the best seasonal produce from British farmers with occasional indulgences as well as virtuous everyday fare.
We hope to create a warm, charming and informal atmosphere where we can build a strong following of regular, happy guests and new one too!
Most importantly to us is that the Masons Arms should be a great place to wile away a few hours and be looked after by people who truly love what they do.
Be it a casual drink with friends, a romantic meal, a special celebration or a family outing, we look forward to welcoming you to the Masons Arms.
