“I really enjoy working at The Rookery as it is located at one of the most breath-taking golf venues in the world.

Being able to support and train young talented chefs and provide them with great opportunities is one of my favourite parts of the job.

We aspire to create meals that leave as much of an impact as the panoramic view across the golf course at The Rookery, utilising local produce and partnering with local farmers and suppliers to showcase high quality cuisine. We strive to create a welcoming environment for golfers, foodies, and casual diners alike.

Our aim is to put Carnoustie on the map as a quality dining experience.”

We are very lucky to have Jonathan leading our team at The Rookery producing a variety of delicious culinary delights from Land and Sea.
