ETM Group has appointed Robert Hunter as Head Chef of The Gun, Docklands.
Prior to The Gun, Robert was Junior Sous Chef at London’s private members’ club, The Royal Automobile Club, Pall Mall, where he worked in the Great Gallery Kitchen brushing up on his fine-dining skills and attention to detail as well as having the opportunity to create a vast repertoire of dishes.
Robert has worked for a number of well-established hotels and restaurants across the world, following tours of duty at two-star Michelin restaurant, Eleven Madison Park in New York and Tangalooma Wild Dolphin Resort in Brisbane, Australia. His work closer to home includes a successful eight-year position as Demi Chef and Chef de Partie at London’s historic luxury hotel, The Goring in Belgravia.
In his role at award-winning riverside gastropub The Gun, Robert will oversee all kitchen operations, supplier relations and the running of the food service from lunch through to dinner. Robert is also responsible for menu planning and development as well as the daily sourcing of the best local and seasonal British ingredients from select UK farms and niche suppliers, that ETM Group prides itself on.
Robert comments, “I’ve always been a big fan of ETM as owners of some of my favourite London gastropubs and restaurants, admiring them especially for their commitment to sourcing the very best British ingredients. It’s great to now be working with the group and I’m really excited about what’s in store!”
Steeped in history, The Gun is a Grade II listed early 19th century building that takes its name from the cannon which was fired to celebrate the opening of the West India Import Docks in 1802.
