After working for a short time in the kitchen at a ski resort, Nik knew it was what he wanted to do. Nik has spent the last 20 years building his career having worked with Jude Kereama and Adam Duckworth before moving to Bristol and gaining experience at Hotel du Vin and River Cafe. Later he returned to Cornwall to take up head chef position at Indaba and opening his own restaurant in Truro where he won two AA Rosettes. After time as a personal chef he then took over The Victoria – reputed to be the oldest pub in Cornwall . The Victoria Inn sits above the beach in Perranuthnoe and dates back to the twelfth century.
Nik’s love for Cornwall and his surroundings shows in his use of local ingredients and his commitment to keeping it simple. Nik and his team strive for consistency in quality and service and have won the Trencherman’s Guide award for Best Front of House Team.
