Stephen Terry opened his first restaurant 15 years ago. Since then he has found that one of the many pleasures of living in South Wales is that he is now closer and often at the source of produce that features on the Hardwick menus.

A recent discovery for us, Bristol's Victorian Lido, dating back to 1849, has undergone a major transformation. Tucked away in Clifton, the Lido has become a year round destination thanks to not only the solar heated pool, but the superb restaurant, bar and spa.

It gives us great pleasure to announce Stephen’s debut book. As you probably know he has always said he would never write a book, but we’re pleased to say that he has finally put pen to paper. He has taken the opportunity to talk about what inspires his cooking in addition to many fellow chefs and colleagues giving their thoughts on what inspires them.
Inspired by… published in October 2015, is available from the Hardwick. You can also buy the book here: Inspired by... Stephen Terry
The Hardwick is a happy home for talented chefs who love wonderful fresh food and prepare it with lots of care and attention.
Junior Sous Chef
Henry is a star of the future. He knows how to prepare the fresh local ingredients we use like an old hand.
CEO of Greens & Colours
Who doesn't like the smell of basil and fresh fennel? Josh surely knows his and he is a guru of flavour. Just taste the minted lamb.

I've eaten Stephen's food for many years and I think his dishes at the Hardwick are outstanding.
