Husband and wife team Graham and Phoebe Fox took over Sutor Creek in the summer of 2010 with the simple aim of providing a welcoming environment offering exceptionally cooked, local food.
A little history . . .
Originally from Burton-on-Trent in the midlands, Chef Graham Fox’s culinary journey started in France at the age of 16 before he joined TV Chef Phil Vickery at the award-winning Castle Hotel in Somerset. In 1999, Chef Fox won the Young Chef of the Year Award from Avery’s Food & Wine and then travelled to the States where he ultimately became Executive Chef of North Carolina’s only 5-Star restaurant. Returning to the UK after 9 years in the States, Chef Fox worked as Private Chef for Sir Anthony Bamford of JCB fame before making the move to Sutor Creek Café in his wife’s family home-town of Cromarty.
Phoebe’s career includes 9 years as Director of Marketing for North Carolina’s only 5 star hotel and restaurant, The Fearrington House, and marketing coordinator for the award-winning Daylesford Organic Farmshop and Cafe in Gloucestershire. Graham and Phoebe are parents to two young boys who both enjoy coming up with new pizza ideas and especially the testing!
