The Good Food Guide said ‘the results are crisp, clear-flavoured and refreshingly free of flimflam', while Graham identifies his cooking as ‘ruthlessly seasonal’. His menus are unusually consistent in reflecting the freshest possible ingredients, and the kitchen staff pride themselves on adapting expertly to the needs of each individual diner.
Graham Garrett appeared on Great British Menu in 2012, losing out to Phil Howard for the chance of representing the South East.
Graham didn't turn to professional cooking until he was thirty-one, but has since cooked at Number 10 Downing Street and Buckingham Palace.
Graham bought The West House in 2002, and has held a Michelin star there since 2004.
Alan Parris and Billy Byles from Aylesford pottery were commissioned by Graham to create bespoke tableware for his restaurant.
