George Cherian, 34, who was head chef at the Sawrey House Hotel, has taken over at the Honest Lawyer as executive chef.

He has brought his mix of French and English cuisine to the riverside venue.

Mr Cherian, of Grasmere, is co-owner of the restaurant with Jimmy Haidur, a partner at the town’s Spice Club Indian restaurant.

Mr Cherian said: “I have always wanted to open a restaurant of my own.

“The response has been very positive and we have already had diners come back after their first meal.”

Mr Haidur added: “The type of menu we are introducing has worked fantastically well all over Ambleside so we hope it will in Cockermouth.

“We feel it will benefit us being right next to the river as people will be able to sit outside during the summer.”
