Lee Mangles gained recognition as Creative Head Chef at Silversmiths Restaurant. In April 2017 he left Silversmiths to explore new horizons. Now as well as taking on the role of Head Chef at the Lawn View Clubhouse in Fulwood – where he’s developing their whole dining offering – he’s also assisting Silversmiths founder Justin Rowntree (Lee’s old boss and great friend) in his new hospitality consultancy business across the city.

Justin Rowntree, founder of Silversmiths Restaurant, has had an exciting hospitality journey over the last 12 years including the life changing visit from Gordon Ramsay in 2009. He’s seen all the ups and downs of running a busy city centre restaurant through the recession and building a brand of local, seasonal Yorkshire dining that’s now won dozens of awards and national recognition. Justin has now moved beyond Silversmiths and is consulting with ever growing number of exciting, often quirky and always unique start-up independent restaurants and cafe’s across the city which he loves.
