The Barn at Moor Hall Awarded its first Michelin Star in 2022
Twelve months have passed since The Barn at Moor Hall was awarded a Michelin star. The menu at The Barn is overseen by Head Chef Nathan Cornwell who took the helm in 2019. Nathan works alongside Mark to ensure the menu at The Barn, which opened in 2017, celebrates ingredients picked from the kitchen garden or produced within the venue’s five-acre estate.
The 65-seat restaurant, featuring original beams, rustic brickwork, and an open kitchen, is situated on the first floor of a converted barn adjacent to the main house and two Michelin-starred Moor Hall Restaurant with Rooms. Running the restaurant day-to-day, Nathan has designed a varied menu of seasonal dishes including 60 Day aged Jersey beef tartare, Jerusalem artichoke, nasturtium; Squab pigeon with confit leg parcel, quince purée and chutney sauce and Yorkshire rhubarb with woodruff mousse, rhubarb sorbet and meringue. In keeping with Mark and Nathan’s commitment to sustainability and self-sufficiency, the ground floor also houses a small dairy, charcuterie, and meat-ageing room.
Commenting at the time, Chef Patron Mark Birchall said: “I’m extremely proud of Nathan and the whole team in The Barn for achieving their first Michelin star and everyone that’s made achieving a Green Star possible. The Barn is a beautiful neighbourhood restaurant, offering simple, seasonal, dishes. It’s a great reward for Nathan and the team and I know our guests will be as thrilled as we are!”
