Meet The Chef

Head Chef Fran Hartshorne

Fran has been thriving in the kitchen since 2005, stepping up to Head Chef in recent years. You could say Fran is ‘home grown’ and has been on a great journey with us at The White Horse, she worked in the US for a number of years but Norfolk is where her heart is and where her cooking comes into its own. “I feel the luckiest Chef on the Norfolk coast, creating in a kitchen that faces out across the stunning tidal marsh, it can’t get much better” says Fran. Passionate about seasonality and the provenance of her ingredients she aims to explore, experience and use every available local ingredient in her menus. There’s an abundance of choice, the pairing of which with Fran’s creativity takes local produce to its highest level.

See Fran in Norfolk Table, a cookbook that celebrates the talents of 20 chefs on the coast. A great read including some of Fran’s delicious recipes. Available to buy at reception for £19.95 and is the perfect souvenir following a meal or stay here at The White Horse.
