Lucy’s parents have owned and run The Old Fire Engine House in Ely for the past 50 years, so the hospitality trade is nothing new to Lucy. Her father taught her much of what she knows, and her varied role as head chef at the Red Lion means no two days are the same.
The Red Lion specialises in modern British dishes with Mediterranean influences, presenting plates packed full of flavour. Lucy works calmly under pressure and has an enthusiastic approach to getting the job done. Having recently received a glowing review in The Guardian, Lucy’s hard work hasn’t gone unrecognised. She continues to cook with inspiration and respect for the produce she so carefully sources, building the reputation of this fledging restaurant.
