About 

Mike Robinson

MULTI AWARD-WINNING CHEF, RESTAURATEUR & HUNTER

Mike started his career cooking as an apprentice in some of the best restaurants in the Savoie region of France. His flair for wild ingredients, culinary skills and ability to communicate led to a career in TV, where he presented several mainstream shows over the following decade regularly attracting viewership figures of over 4 million households. In a quest to harvest the finest ingredients for his dishes, Mike also controls the wild game on over 40,000 acres of private land in the UK then famously supplies his two restaurants with venison and sustainably sourced game meat. Much of the venison served is still hunted by Mike himself, who is a passionate and seasoned hunter. In 2009 Mike opened the legendary Harwood Arms, London. The pub attained a coveted Michelin star in 2010 and has held it ever since – it remains the only pub in London to do so for a decade.
