Native Feasts is a collaboration between Chris Godfrey and Greg Jones.
Chris was awarded a Michelin Star for his cooking whilst head chef at the Sir Charles Napier restaurant, Oxfordshire. Prior to that he worked under Phil Howard at the Square and Emily Watkins at the Plough at Kingham among other highly regarded restaurants. He has simplified his style in recent times, focusing on flavour, seasonality and quality local and British produce.
Greg met Chris whilst sommelier at the Sir Charles Napier and had previously managed cocktail bars and restaurants in Sydney and the UK. Greg’s passion is for all things liquid, whether it be artisan wine, single origin coffee or craft beer.
Together they bring combined experience of over 30 years in hospitality, having learned all the dos and don’ts along the way. Their focus is on creating holistic dining experiences, taking the best bits of their formal training, throwing away the stuffiness and concentrating on quality, atmosphere and creating informal experiences of type that they would like to go to themselves.
They initially teamed up when Chris needed a front of house collaborator for a pop-up series. Native Feasts was born and has been growing organically since then. They now balance a mix of private and corporate events with their pop-ups.
Their pop-up feasts have been running since Feb 2016 and last from 1 night to 8 weeks. Join the mailing list and follow @nativefeasts on social media to find out about the next series.
