Born and raised in New Zealand, Jude moved to the UK in 1996 having trained under acclaimed chef Simon Gault. He spent many years working in London at a variety of top restaurants before making the move to Cornwall.

Jude’s take on classic seafood with a twist has earned Kota recognition in the form of 2 AA rosettes and a Michelin Bib Gourmand. The restaurant was also named in the Top 50 Summer Restaurants in Britain.

Alongside Kota, Jude also runs the sister restaurant Kota Kai down the road.

His menu is inspired by his mother’s cooking and local Cornish produce, and pays tribute to the women of the WI both today and over their 100 year history.
