Meet the Cragwood
Head Chef


When in the kitchen, Head Chef, Calvin Harrison loves nothing more than developing new dishes, refining flavours and introducing new ingredients.

Jamaican born, Calvin’s early career was spent in his hometown working in a variety of hotels, before travelling to the USA where he spent a year, improving and gaining experience.  In 2003, he seized the opportunity to move to the UK to join the kitchen team at our sister hotel Briery Wood.  In 2007 he transferred to Cragwood and after seven years of hard work and determination, he was promoted to Head Chef. Under Calvin’s leadership, Cragwood has achieved two AA rosettes for culinary excellence.

Cragwood Country House now joins an elite selection of restaurants across the UK to hold the coveted double AA rosette status.
