Nathan Outlaw

King of Fish and Star on Great British Menu

Nathan Outlaw is an English professional chef who has worked previously with television chef Rick Stein.

He now runs his self-titled two Michelin star restaurant, Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, in Port Isaac, Cornwall. He has appeared on television shows such as BBC’s Great British Menu and Saturday Kitchen.

His first job as a chef was with Peter Kromberg at the Intercontinental Hyde Park Corner in London. Positions alongside chefs Gary Rhodes and Eric Chavot followed, then between 1998 and 2000 he worked with chefs Rick Stein and Paul Ripley in Padstow, Cornwall.

Stein and Outlaw have remained friends ever since. He went on to work at the two Michelin starred restaurant Lords of the Manor with head chef John Campbell.

In May 2003 he opened his own restaurant for the first time, called The Black Pig. He was awarded his first Michelin star in the following January at the age of 25.

In 2006, he took over the restaurant at the Marina Villa in Fowey, Cornwall, opening his self-titled Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in 2007.

In 2009 The Good Food Guide included Outlaw’s self-titled restaurant at the eleventh position and described the chef as making “discreet but powerful waves” in the industry.

He opened his second restaurant, the Nathan Outlaw Seafood Bar and Grill, at the St Enodoc Hotel in Rock, Cornwall in May during the same year.

The 2010 Good Food Guide saw his restaurant move up one place and into the top ten for the first time, with Outlaw described as a “wizard”. During the same year, he also competed in BBC’s Great British Menu, where he served a fish course topped with gutweed, a type of seaweed.

Outlaw supported the Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service’s campaign to prevent cooking-related fires at Christmas. The 2011 Michelin Guide awarded Nathan his second star at his self-titled restaurant.

It remains the only specialised fish restaurant in the UK to hold any Michelin stars. Outlaw has also appeared on the television show Saturday Kitchen.
