Refurbished & re-launched by new owners (January 2017). Sadler's Brasserie is the relaxed informal restaurant. Head Chef, Jason Porter has taken the reins at the Sadler's Brasserie! He will now use his extensive and renowned culinary skills to make Sadler’s Brasserie on Sadler Street one of the go-to destination restaurants in the West Country. Having gained rave reviews as head chef of the New Inn, in Cerne Abbas, Dorset, Jason is hoping his well-crafted textures, delightful flavours and excellent presentation will win over foodies and locals looking for an honest and well-priced dining experience. Originally from Wells, Jason discovered his passion for cooking while working at Ritcher’s Restaurant (now Goodfellows) in Wells where his natural ability and drive resulted in him becoming head chef by the age of 18. With a clear vision of what he wanted and need to widen his knowledge he then applied for a position at Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant at Claridges. Having impressed the team he was offered a position at The Connaught, the five-star Mayfair hotel where the celebrity chef had taken over the food and beverage.
