Gary Meehan, Sous-Chef, Harbour Restaurant & Bar

Gary's culinary inspiration flares from his initial training he received while under the watchful eye of Chef Paul Gayler at the Lanesborough Hotel Hyde Park in London from the early age of 18. I then trained as part of a team under three Michelin stared Chef Heinz Beck at Apsleys Restaurant London which received a one Michelin star. My classical training in French & Italian cuisine and these early standards in excellence that set the foundation for my career today. I moved to Canada and trained for five years where I really became accustomed to fresh home-grown produce. The emphasis on having our produce fresh from farm to table is something that really excites me.

"My goal in the Harbour is to work with the team to provide the best possible experience for our guests by using local produce of the highest standards."
