About Mark

Mark Broadbent has had an illustrious career spanning 28 years working in Five star Hotels, 2 star Michelin restaurants, Modern Restaurants, Gastro Pubs, Member’s clubs and also has worked with a host of prolific Operators over the years within private and corporate ventures alike.

Mark has made his name through hard work, commitment and having his finger firmly on the pulse of modern city cooking, which over the years have earned him critical acclaim in the press and Media. His Great British Menu challenge saw him as ranked under dog only to win the Regional Northern Champion position over world-renowned Marcus Wareing, which introduced him and warmed the nation to him…!

The Bluebird was the biggest mission in his career to date starting with The Bluebird Dining Rooms which achieved huge critical acclaim especially loved by AA Gill. The other kitchens became priority encompassing The Epicerie Food Store, Courtyard Café, Bakery, Private Dining rooms and The Brasserie which was re launched in 2008 and has since put Bluebird firmly back on the culinary map.
