Trinity now holds a Michelin star (since 2016), three AA rosettes and numerous other accolades. Voted in the top ten restaurants in London by both Hardens and Zagat in 2010 and 2011, it has also been included in The Times’ Top 100 Restaurants in the UK. Giles Coren – a critic not known to give praise without very good reason – said Trinity was ‘as close to an absolutely perfect experience eating out as it is possible to have’.

In 2012, Adam realised a long-held dream and opened Bistro Union, a neighbourhood bistro serving quintessentially British dishes in a relaxed environment. A homage to Adam’s nostalgic memories from his childhood in Essex, typical Bistro Union dishes include Beef and onion cottage pie and Turkey stuffed tomatoes. Never one to slow down, 2015 saw Adam overlook a major refurbishment of Trinity and the launch of a new upstairs dining room. Visitors to the restaurant can now head upstairs for a more casual dining environment, with live music and a menu featuring small dishes that change daily.

Adam’s enthusiasm for seasonality and the great outdoors (when not in the kitchen he loves to hunt and fish) is matched by his desire to give back to the community. He has worked for many charities including DEBRA and Action Against Hunger and travels to numerous culinary schools and colleges to give talks on careers in the hospitality industry. Adam’s career also went full circle when he became a mentor for the same scholarship program that started it all, with his apprentice placement at Claridge's.
