Michelin-starred chef Adam Jackson is to open a new fine-dining restaurant called The Park, at Sutton Park stately home in Yorkshire.
Jackson, who helped win a star as head chef at the Black Swan at Oldstead, said he hoped that the new venture would be up and running in four to five weeks.
The restaurant, which will initially cater for 14 covers and will open for four nights a week, offering a seven-course tasting menu at £45.
Jackson said that although the menu was not yet finalised, it would take advantage of the extensive kitchen garden at Sutton Park.
There will also be the capacity to open for five, or even six nights at the venue, where Jackson's partner also runs the tea rooms.
He said he hoped the fine dining restaurant would appeal to a wide variety of customers, and would be accessible enough to be enjoyed by younger customers with families too.
Jackson started working at the Black Swan at Oldstead, owned by the local Banks family, in 2008. Over the course of his time there he helped the pub/restaurant its first AA rosette before taking it up to three AA rosette level.
The restaurant won a Michelin star in 2012, before repeating the feat again in 2013.
Speaking of his time there, Jackson said: "It was a lifelong ambition to win a star - I owe quite a lot to the Banks family. They were very supportive while I was there."
