Paul Wedgwood

Co-owner and Head Chef

Paul Wedgwood started his career in the Lake District working in a variety of establishments from pubs and leisure parks to fine dining Michelin starred restaurants. Paul was particularly inspired by working under celebrity chef John Tovey at Miller Howe in Windermere. A passionate and ambitious chef, Paul’s long term goal was always open a fine dining restaurant in which he would combine his experiences to be able to offer fine dining in informal surroundings with excellent service.

In 1999 Paul opened the Georgian House bar in Kendal which was hugely successful despite being located in a working class market town.
Six years later on a visit with Lisa to his parents in Edinburgh the couple’s dreams started to become realised when they found the venue for Wedgwood the Restaurant.

Wedgwood the Restaurant has quickly become a key player in the Edinburgh restaurant scene and Paul with his vivacious and enthusiastic character is often called upon and is available to perform cooking demonstrations throughout the UK and internationally. Paul is also a regular favourite at the Taste of Edinburgh Festival.
