who are we?
“Head Chef Jonathan Clarke changes his menus weekly at his intimate restaurant in Parkgate. He took over the reins with his wife Chloe in July 2017, both with a high level of experience and a precise drive towards their goal to redeem a lost touch of great service, high quality food and most importantly - consistency! With experience under his belt from renowned restaurants across the country, working under the home grown star chef Eddie Atwell and even experience under Daniel Clifford of Midsummer House, Cambridge. His style of food is casual, gratifying the local farming community yet he is a master of flavour and loves to gear customers towards a finer flair. Local ingredients are essential, from our firm favourite local suppliers to our own foraging and garden grown produce - all help to create stunning seasonal dishes year round. Expect both traditional and exciting dishes with great value for spectacular food, local produce and a real passion for small details.”

Our extensive range of ingredients and dishes are on a cook to order basis so can be changed to suit the needs or wishes of our customers. We also welcome special bookings of weddings, birthdays, celebrations, larger parties and events catered for too - both onsite and via our Outdoor Catering company with it's own Holestone Food Truck!
