Pam Brunton, Chef Owner, Inver

The Staff Canteen

Pam Brunton is Chef and co-Owner with partner Rob Latimer, of Michelin Green Starred, Inver.

Pam Brunton and Rob Latimer, the culinary power couple behind the acclaimed restaurant Inver, are redefining fine dining with a deep commitment to sustainability and a Michelin Green Star to prove it. Their journey to culinary excellence and eco-consciousness is a remarkable tale of passion, innovation, and environmental stewardship.

Pam’s 20-year food career bounces from academia to kitchens and back again; from remote Scottish islands to Scandinavia, via London, Belgium and France. With a degree in food policy and four years of food charity and campaign work, learning to think again about restaurants and their role in the world, her experience brings a unique perspective to the world of gastronomy.

Rob, a culinary enthusiast with a background in business, shared Pam's vision for a restaurant that embraced sustainability without compromising on taste led them to open Inver in March 2015. Inver, located amidst the pristine beauty of nature, became their canvas for culinary artistry with a conscience. The restaurant unites their combined skills and creativity to inspiring effect; Inver opened to critical acclaim and has been listed among the UK’s top restaurants ever since.

Pam has commented, “Sustainability is the ground on which we build our business; it’s much more than a ‘subject’ to us. The people, landscape, plants and animals that guide and shape our menus are an ecosystem, in which we are one evolving part. If they don’t thrive, neither can we”.

Inver's menu reflects their commitment to sustainability, featuring a carefully curated selection of dishes crafted from locally sourced ingredients and a focus on minimal waste. This dedication to eco-friendly practices and exceptional cuisine was acknowledged when Inver was awarded the prestigious Michelin Green Star. This coveted recognition celebrates their innovative approach to environmental sustainability in the restaurant industry.
