Proprietors The House Collection hope The Dining Room at Poets House, in St Mary’s Street, will put Ely on the map for the best in British cooking with a contemporary twist.

Newly appointed executive chef, Leah Jenson, has been unveiling her plans to bring The Dining Room foodie concept to life, first at Poets House when it opens in early May.

Leah is heading a team that will prepare fresh, high quality ingredients to offer the best of what’s in season in her signature style which she describes as modern-traditional, with the emphasis on taste, flavour and beautiful presentation.

Leah said: “I am so excited to be joining The House Collection and launching The Dining Room. We will be sourcing the finest produce from local suppliers to create clean, honest, inspirational menus.”
