Originally from Cornwall, Michelin-starred chef Tom Brown worked in restaurants around the South-West including Rick Stein’s before he met two-Michelin starred Nathan Outlaw. Tom started working for Outlaw at the St Enodoc Hotel in Rock where he quickly worked up the ranks to Head Chef. After three years, he moved to London to be Head Chef at Nathan’s eponymous restaurant at The Capital Hotel in Knightsbridge, where he retained their coveted Michelin star.
In 2018, Tom opened his own restaurant, Cornerstone in Hackney Wick, to critical acclaim – winning a Michelin Star in 2021, having successfully retained since. Cornerstone was also listed in the Harden’s Guide top 100 restaurants in the UK for 2023. November 2023 will see the opening of Tom’s new oyster bar, Pearly Queen, in Shoreditch.
