Chris Burt - Executive Head Chef at The Mytton and Mermaid, Shropshire

Welcome to Alternative Meats - Deliciously Different

Chris Burt Executive Head Chef Mytton & Mermaid

You will find the Mytton and Mermaid Hotel and Restaurant nestled by the picturesque River Severn in Shrewsbury. An old Coaching Inn of past days, this Grade II listed building has a charm of its own and once inside, you will love the warm, welcoming environment and the sense of comfort and tranquility. The Mytton has been awarded 4 AA stars and a coveted AA rosette for quality food and service, and the range of menus feature fresh seasonal produce produced by a talented team headed up by Executive Head Chef, Chris Burt.




Chris is one of our most charismatic Chefs - he has boundless energy, and is tireless in his search for the perfect ingredients to complement his full range of menus at the Mytton and Mermaid.   These incorporate some of the finest local ingredients in Shropshire (and our meats too, of course!). Chris grew up in the kitchens of his Mother’s huge restaurant in Yengama, Sierra Leone, West Africa, before leaving to train at The Savoy.  Since then has travelled extensively throughout the world, soaking up  foreign cultures and learning about the amazing foods he discovered, and along the way becoming involved in many charities.   



Chef Chris has also written a critically acclaimed cookbook, ‘"Momo-No-Ki" (after his very successful Japanese style restaurant in Shrewsbury).  Watch out for the soon-to-be-released "Straight Outta Africa", where lots of our lovely meats are featured in some amazing recipes especially created by Chris, and which is timed for launch just as he travels out to Uganda to take part in a 10k run for the charity Self Help Africa.  What a legend!




Chris is often to be seen throughout Shropshire promoting Shropshire products and producers, and demonstrating at many Food Festivals such as Whitchurch, Shrewsbury, Cosford, Gingerfest (Market Drayton) and Shrewsbury Flower Show,  just to name a few - we are delighted that he also takes the time to include our products in his line ups!!
