Long Table Banquets

Richard is undoubtedly the most established and well-known Irish chef we have in the country. He has opened numerous restaurants, gained Michelin stars, authored two recipe books, cooked for the Queen and Barack Obama, and regularly makes appearances on radio and television; notably winning Great British Menu three times, and also being a regular judge on the popular BBC series.

Richard runs four sites in London - Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill off Piccadilly, Corrigan’s Mayfair, Daffodil Mulligan (Old Street) and The Portrait Restaurant atop The National Portrait Gallery - as well as Virginia Park Lodge in Co. Cavan, Ireland.

A farmer’s son, Richard began his teenage career in the kitchens and has cooked all his life. He is a vehement supporter of British and Irish produce and small independent suppliers. Richard’s chefs only use wild game and wild sustainable fish, and produce such as butter, cheese and charcuterie are primarily sourced from family-run, independent businesses in Britain and Ireland. Bread is made in the restaurant's bakeries (also available to buy at Fortnum & Mason), and salmon is smoked on Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill’s rooftop. In short, everything, where possible, is made from scratch in-house.
