We’re lucky to have some of the most welcoming and creative professionals in town waiting to welcome you.

“Joe” Joaquim Guerreiro

Those familiar with the MCR will know that Joe is the beating heart of the restaurant. He has been at the helm for the last 17 years and remains fiercely proud of the MCR. Joe has seen a few changes in the restaurant over the years, but the refurbishment in 2019 gave him the opportunity to really put his mark on the space. As the face of the restaurant, Joe will be delighted to welcome you again and again.

Joseph O’Neill

“The MCR is the perfect place for me as I can showcase amazing food and work with a great team in a beautiful contemporary setting, in central London. The stunning gardens on our estate offer incredible produce to use in our food, so I always feel excited to come into work and start creating.”
