Nathan Outlaw ceases pub partnership with Sharp’s Brewery

Chef Nathan Outlaw, whose eponymous Cornish restaurant was awarded two Michelin stars in the latest guide, has stepped away from his collaborative pub project with Sharp’s Brewery, describing the move as a “huge decision”.

Outlaw and Sharp’s launched their pub called the Mariners in the village of Rock in 2014.

Announcing the decision on social media, Outlaw referred to the move as “a huge decision for me personally”.

He said: “After five successful years, I’ve decided to step down from my partnership with Sharp’s Brewery at the Mariners Rock.

“It has been a huge decision for me personally as I am extremely proud of what the team has achieved and I’ve enjoyed being part of the growth of such a lovely bunch of people. Zack Hawke and his team have only ever got stronger and better in the kitchen, which I thank them for.

“Good luck for the future and I look forward to coming back for a Sunday roast and a pint.”

The news comes a month after the chef also revealed that he was moving away from the Capital Hotel after a six-year partnership, and would be opening a new restaurant at London’s Goring Hotel. Outlaw will divide his time between his London restaurant and two Cornish outposts, spending two days a week in the capital.

The restaurant is scheduled to open at the end of April and will focus on sustainable Cornish seafood.

His Cornish restaurants are two-Michelin-starred Restaurant Nathan Outlaw and one-starred Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen, which are both located in the Cornish village of Port Isaac.

Last month, Sharp’s Brewery launched its first cook book, called Just Add Beer, in which Outlaw has written the foreword.

Fellow Cornish-based chef Rick Stein has also collaborated with the brewery, producing two collaborative beers named after the chef’s late Jack Russel Terrier, Chalky.
