The Greyhound

Antony describes The Greyhound, his restaurant and freehouse at Rotherfield Peppard near Henley-on-Thames, as his “perfect local”. It is filled with trinkets, pictures and artefacts personally chosen by Antony’s wife, Jay. Antony himself is Head Chef and his menu includes comforting pub classics as well as signature dishes. Fresh, seasonal food is key and Antony goes out of his way to support local producers such as Gabriel Machin, Henley’s long-established butcher.

Antony and Jay Worrall Thompson’s New Venture


The Chef

Never thought I'd be there at my age but, I'm back on the stove. Mainly at the greyhound and more recently at Kew upgrading the menus.

The kitchen has become my playground where I experiment, with the modern as well as the classics. Not everything works, but where would I be if I didn't continue to search the holy grail of cooking. Don't get me wrong I have no inclination at my age to go deeper into the science but, I am passionate about the every day use of every day ingredients without the use of scientific powders, pastes & theories.

My bug is food wastage as a society we throwaway 40% of food we produce or buy, I simply will not let this happen in my restaurants. There is a use for every part of every ingredient.

The Author

I have produced 32 books "at the last count" but at present I'm suffering from writers block. As I spend time in the kitchen re-building my team I feel this block being removed. As I still have the imagination of a child, I still have the ability to write, all I need now is to bring these two together.
