  THE FRONT LINE

 

 

 

 
Head Chef Karl Goward

Karl Goward

Head Chef

Karl's career includes several years spent heading up Fergus Henderson’s St John Bread and Wine in Spitalfield. Karl was appointed head chef at Soho House New York and prior to that spent time cooking at both the Drapers Arms and the legendary Prune in New York.

BEHIND THE SCENES

 

Adam Byatt

Adam had always aspired to open a truly British Bistro to compliment the more formal Trinity across the common in Clapham Old Town.

The food at BU is based on Nostalgic food from his childhood, British in origin, thoughtfully sourced and cooked with intelligence by Karl and his team

Born in Essex, into a working class family, Adam was exposed to the world of cooking from an early age, his grandfather was a cook in the British army, his mother also a chef he experienced good home cooking, whilst he quickly learned from his window cleaner father the art of hard graft and integral work ethics. Just two days after his 16th birthday he began an apprenticeship at Claridge’s.

After a brief stint at The Berkeley, Adam joined Phil Howard’s lauded Mayfair restaurant, The Square. 

 Adam was eager to cook his own food and in 2001 he opened his first restaurant, Thyme, in Clapham. His second restaurant; Trinity was an instant hit when it opened in 2006 and has held three AA rosettes for seven years.

Adams cookbook 'how to eat in' was published in 2010 and he regularly appears on BBC1 Saturday Kitchen.

 

Leah Kirkland

Leah helped to build and open Bistro Union in 2012 and now oversees management, service and general logistics. Leah was also part of the launch team at Trinity in 2006 and has worked for Adam for close to nine years. Absolute dedication and continuous high standards have taken her to the position of General Manager of both Trinity and Bistro Union.
