The Cadogan Arms to relaunch with James Knappett as culinary director

He will work alongside Alex Harper, executive chef, who has spent time at both The Ledbury and The Harwood Arms

The Cadogan Arms has announced plans to relaunch this July, and has appointed James Knappett as the new culinary director to lead operations for the venue’s new food offering. 

Knappett joins from two Michelin-star Kitchen Table in London’s Fitzrovia, and will oversee the menu as culinary director  – drawing inspiration from his first-hand experience of growing up in pubs. 

He will work alongside Alex Harper, executive chef, who has spent time at both The Ledbury and The Harwood Arms. 

In further support of the relaunch, Dominic Jacobs of The Running Horse Mayfair will spearhead the project as managing director – having raised capital from a number of private investors, including Jyotin, Karam and Sunaina Sethi, founders of JKS Restaurants

Jacobs will work to create a food and drinks offering that celebrates the “revival of community driven hospitality” –  as locals look to their neighbourhoods for “post-lockdown comfort”. 

Jacobs said: “Dating back to the 1700’s, The Cadogan Arms is one of Chelsea’s most enduring  public houses’. The team are excited to once again be able to open the doors to the local community and deliver a gold  standard public house experience that honours the rich history of the venue.”
