Food: Open day at Hole in the Wall
The Hole in the Wall - the Little Wilbraham restaurant made famous by Cambridge MasterChef finalist Alex Rushmer - has just reopened under new ownership.
Taking the helm last month, Nilesh Misquitta, formerly a chef on the QE2, says: “The first time I came to see the place, I just fell in love with both it and the area. That was the first factor in deciding to come here. I just needed to work hard to bring it back to life.”
Nilesh, who already owns and runs the acclaimed Elm Tree Inn near Wisbech, says his global menu, which he’s keeping “simple to start with”, is inspired by his time with Cunard. “I stayed with Cunard for six years, travelled around the world on cruises, and that’s where I picked up bits and bobs for the cuisine,” he explains.
The Elm Tree Inn won Good Food plaudits in both 2016 and 2017 and was shortlisted in the Luxury Travel Awards last year, so hopes for the new Hole in the Wall are high. “I’ve been cooking for 23 years,” adds Nilesh. “It’s what I love to do.”
