Prior to this, Kerth spent two years with Jason Atherton overseas as Chef de Cuisine and has also held cheffing positions at The Wolseley, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon and Tom Aikens.

Agnieszka Josko joins as restaurant manager, a position she previously held at the two Michelin-starred restaurant, The Greenhouse. Prior to this, she worked at an array of starred establishments including Gordon Ramsay at Claridge’s and Helene Darroze at The Connaught.

Agnieszka worked with Shaun as a Commis Waitress at his Michelin-starred Jersey restaurant, Bohemia, back in 2004.

Andreas Rosendal will take on the role of head sommelier having previously held the same position at Michelin-starred Brasserie Chavot. Prior to this he was Assistant Head Sommelier for two years at the two-star Restaurant Sat Bains and also looked after the UK’s largest wine list at the Michelin-starred restaurant, The Greenhouse, with 3,600 bins.

Commenting on the new team, General Manager of Flemings Mayfair, Henrik Muehle said: “Shaun Rankin and I have worked closely together to select the very best possible team for Ormer Mayfair. Having overseen Seven Park Place at St James’s Hotel and Club and Eric Chavot when he was at The Capital Hotel London, I know how vital it is to get the right team in place from the very start. With Shaun, Kerth, Agnieszka and Andreas, we have a super talented brigade all working to establish Ormer Mayfair as one of London finest restaurants.”

Ormer Mayfair will offer a quintessentially British dining experience, from the food through to the wines. The 85-cover restaurant is part of a £14 million refurbishment of the historical boutique hotel that dates back to 1851.
