Joshua Cutress has been promoted from sous chef to head chef at Brett Graham and Mike Robinson’s high-profile Fulham pub The Harwood Arms.

Outgoing head chef Jake Leach will stay on with Graham working on developing the food at both the Walham Grove site and The Ledbury as well as the group’s growing farming operation. 

Cutress joined The Harwood Arms as sous at 26 years old having previously worked at both The Ledbury and The Square.

The chef says he is excited to continue The Harwood Arm’s repertoire, which is focused on seasonal British ingredients and sustainability.

Game on

His kitchen will stay true to the Harwood Arms commitment to celebrating game with the pub’s celebrated venison Scotch eggs remaining on the menu but will also 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 Sunday lunches for which the Harwood Arms is renowned.

Top 50 Gastropubs

Launched in 2009 by Graham and Robinson and Edwin Vaux, The Harwood Arms is currently the only pub in the capital to hold a Michelin star and placed 13th on the Top 50 Gastropubs list this year.

The listing on the Top 50 Gastropubs website reads: “Eating at the Harwood Arms is a cosy affair that won’t break the bank… unless you let the extensive wine list carry you away, that is. Three courses will set you back just £65, considering it’s a Michelin-starred venue, we think this is extremely reasonable.
“The Harwood Arms prides itself on being ‘not your average gastropub’ and is hidden away in Fulham’s back streets offering award-winning food and wine in a casual and relaxed environment.”
