Our History

Pied à Terre opened its doors in 1991 under the guidance of David Moore with head chef Richard Neat who went on to achieve Michelin star status almost immediately and then doubling them in 1996.

Tom Aikens, stepped into the limelight after being sous chef there since 1993, when Richard left to return to France. Both Michelin stars were retained until 1999 and after Aikens’ departure, his own sous chef, Shane Osborn, was given his turn at the helm. Allowed time to settle in and steady the ship, he regained the second star in 2003 and in June 2011, Shane Osborn passed the baton to one time protégé Marcus Eaves. In October 2015, Andy McFadden from L’Autre Pied joined Pied à Terre as Head Chef.

Serious fire damage in November 2004 meant the restaurant was closed for most of 2005 but fortunately no damage was done to the superior quality of the gastronomic cuisine and it went onto gain more gastronomic awards and accolades.
