Head Chef

Joe Clapham

Head Chef at The Bow Room, Bradford-born Joe Clapham, has worked tirelessly to develop and perfect his passion and flair for producing the finest food. He says this stems from a childhood spent around food “my mum taught me to cook, dad taught me to grow, working in restaurant kitchens taught me to taste and I taught myself to combine the three.” Joe’s inherent desire to serve food comprising the finest ingredients provides the trademark for the dishes that come out of kitchen. He and his team are dedicated to ensuring that the dining experience at The Bow Room provides a memorable and lasting impression, combining beautifully presented dishes using home grown and locally sourced produce.

From our garden to your plate

At Grays Court we are committed to providing fresh, high quality, locally and sustainably grown food. To this end, over the past several years, our head gardener, Jules Fern, has been extending the range of edible produce we grow alongside ornamentals in our half acre of garden. From heritage Yorkshire cultivars, such as Apple ‘Ribston Pippin’ and Rhubarb ‘Brandy Carr Scarlett’, to traditional herbs and more unusual vegetables and edible flowers, all of the produce in the garden is grown organically.

Championing local produce

We use local produce wherever we can, our menus driven by local, seasonal ingredients. We are fortunate to be located in the heart of “God’s own country”, surrounded by a fantastic array of top-quality produce. We grow some of our own produce right here in the garden, ensuring the highest levels of quality and sustainability, by growing without chemicals and eliminating food miles and packaging.
