Talented Chef Patron, Mark Birchall, creates delicate produce-driven menus inspired by our exceptional surroundings and home grown ingredients.
Mark was born in Chorley, Lancashire and trained at Runshaw College. He was most recently Executive Chef of 2 Michelin Star L’Enclume in Cumbria and won the Roux Scholarship, the premier competition for chefs in the UK in 2011. He also worked at El Celler de Can Roca, Girona, a 3 Michelin Star Restaurant owned by the Roca Brothers, twice voted the World’s Best Restaurant.
Mark’s menus showcase his own style of modern British cuisine, wherever possible using produce grown on the five acre Moor Hall site or from local suppliers, and reflecting the broad culinary experience he has garnered over the last 20 years. Under Mark's patronage, Moor Hall has obtained two Michelin stars, five AA Rosettes and was recently crowned 'Restaurant of the Year' at the National Restaurant Awards. The Barn, Mark Birchall's casual dining restaurant, located within the grounds of Moor Hall, offers delicious seasonal menus in a relaxed setting.
