Christopher White & Purdey Spooner

Our Restaurant

The White Spoon is a restaurant born from the ambition and commitment of our Chef Director, Chris White. It is a relaxed dining experience where you can expect to see dishes that showcase individual ingredients, each elevated, using modern techniques, into something truly exciting, without losing their original charm.

Our aim is to serve you the highest standard of food, in an approachable and unpretentious environment and as an alternative to fine dining. Attentive individual service coupled with a contemporary feel makes The White Spoon the perfect spot for all.


Discover Our Story

The White Spoon is led by Chef Director, Chris White, supported by his partner Purdey Spooner, both of whom share a passion and deep attachment to food.

Having developed his culinary skills in many accoladed establishments, Chris relishes the freedom that The White Spoon presents him in terms of the freedom to cook the food that excites him.

Through the White Spoon they want to pass on their dining experiences to those who enjoy eating and drinking as much as they do!

It is with great sadness that Purdey & I are making the following announcement;


After three and half great years running our fantastic restaurant, Sunday 24th March 2019 will be The White Spoon’s last service before we close permanently.


We have had such a fantastic time, creating, growing and running The White Spoon, a dream I have held for a long time. We are hugely proud of all that we have achieved.


Unfortunately, the challenges of running a business, especially in such a demanding industry, whilst trying to maintain a balance with a young family have proven too much of a stretch for us. As a partnership and a family, we have made the very difficult decision to move on and adapt what our lifestyle looks like.


We are thankful to you all our customers who have taken time to dine with us, in particular those of you who have become avid supporters, visiting regularly. Over the years there are those of you who have become less like customers and more like friends, to the whole White Spoon Team. We will miss you dearly.


We’d also like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you, to our staff, past and present who   have shared our passion and shown great commitment. Whenever, the going got tough, we could always rely on certain people to dig deeper than ever asked.


Apologies, but this does mean that we will not be able to honour any bookings past the 25th March.


We hope that over the next week we will see a few of you to say goodbye. We have a number of tables available Thursday to Sunday, if you wish to visit us for one last taste of The White Spoon’s unique offering..… and I’m sure there will be a few bargains on our wine list this week!


All the best,

Chris, Purdey & Annie
