Falmouth born and bred Nick started cooking when he was fifteen years old, then trained under chef legends Keith Floyd and Jean Christophe Novelli. He returned to Cornwall to run restaurants at the Headland Hotel and The Rosevine, as well as to teach at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Foundation.

Now forty eight, most of the chefs he trained with have long left the profession, whereas Nick has grown to become Executive Chef of both The Greenbank Hotel in Falmouth and The Alverton Hotel in Truro. With a love of food and the outdoors – the two always sat side by side – Nick loves to catch the fish, then cook it and of course, eat it too!

Nick believes that The Greenbank is refreshing. It’s honest and it concentrates on what he does best. Sat on the river with views of the Carrick Roads and beyond, Nick understands that our guests want to taste the view and it’s his job to do his best to deliver this. With a food style of modern, regionally influenced food with a rustic edge, Nick has really put his style of cooking out there for Cornwall to taste.
