Joshua Cutress is the new Head Chef at Michelin-starred pub The Harwood Arms

The  Staff Canteen

Joshua Cutress has been appointed Head Chef at London’s only Michelin-starred pub, The Harwood Arms in Fulham, co-owned by Brett Graham, Mike Robinson and Edwin Vaux.

At 26, he joined the Harwood as Sous Chef. Before joining the multi award-winning pub, Joshua held lengthy roles in a few of London’s top restaurants - first The Square in 2016, before moving to The Ledbury in late 2017. He stayed there for 4 years before taking on a sous-chef position at The Harwood Arms alongside Jake Leach.

Jake, who took over from Sally Abe as head chef in 2021, has now moved to a development role within Brett Graham’s organisation, involved across the restaurants and the farms.

Josh is excited to continue Harwood’s repertoire, focused on seasonal British ingredients and sustainability. His kitchen will stay true to the Harwood Arms commitment to celebrating game – the venerated venison scotch eggs will certainly remain on the menu – but will extend the use of the whole animal in a transition to his own dishes. Graham’s Iberico Pork and charcuterie will also be a big part of the menu.

Sustainable farming and using different cuts with the best ageing will add new rotational variety to the successful Sunday lunches for which the Harwood Arms is renowned.
