Our new fabulous chef Shaun.

Shaun, a smoggy (Middlesbrough-born) has previously worked at The Downe Arms in Wykeham. However, it’s his catering experience before this that’ll raise some eyebrows and also MANY questions.
Gig-a-bite is a specialist catering company founded and based in Newcastle. Touring the UK and Europe with leading rock bands such as AC/DC and the Rolling Stones to name a couple sounds like some sort of crazy dream, but that was Shaun’s life for a good ten years. Admitting he has many memories, however, when prompted to tell more, replies with the classic ‘what happens on tour, stays on tour.’ What a total rock n roll chef he is!

Back to reality and where he resides now, locally in Scarborough and with us here at the Denison, Shaun says, upon being asked what he’d recommend from the menu here, that it would definitely be The Denison Burger. His own creation, which is something that Shaun definitely loves doing – creating dishes, as any chef does. Asked about the menu, Shaun explains that he looks forward to being able to add more seafood to it, currently sourcing what he uses from Smarts of Filey, so keep an eye on the specials boards!

Now, granted he doesn’t have much spare time, as we work him pretty hard, but Shaun comments that he enjoys spending time with his family. Everybody say AW.

We hope you get a chance to meet him at some point, he’s quite elusive, as you can probably tell from the picture (it was the best we could get!) but he’s a good egg.
