Mark Birchall to leave Rogan's restaurants

Mark Birchall, the group executive chef for Simon Rogan's restaurants in Cartmel, Cumbria and Manchester, is to leave the company to start his own restaurant.

Birchall joined L'Enclume in 2006 as sous chef before becoming head chef in early 2008 and then being appointed to his new role across the northern restaurants in November 2014. Rogan's restaurants in the north include the two-Michelin-starred L'Enclume (Cartmel), Rogan & Co (Cartmel), the French (Manchester), and Mr Cooper's (Manchester).

Birchall will leave the company on 31 July 2015 with the aim of launching his own establishment in the summer of 2016.

"Mark has given me nine years of his culinary life and I am grateful for his phenomenal contribution to our restaurants' achievements," Rogan said. "I wish him all the best for the future and I will do all I can to help him in his new venture, which I am sure will be a great success."

Birchall added: "L'Enclume will always have a special place in my heart. I am truly grateful to have been surrounded by great professionals and to be given such opportunities to develop within a great company over the years."

Rogan is now exploring options to replace Birchall's role within his Umbel Restaurant Group.
