Name: Kate Lawlor
Appointment: Head Chef at The Oyster Tavern

Renowned chef Kate Lawlor has been appointed Head Chef at The Oyster Tavern. The Oyster Tavern recently underwent a significant €1.5 million transformation after being taken over by well-known publican and restaurateur Alan Clancy, who also owns House in Limerick, 37 Dawson Street, The Oak and House in Dublin. 

The two-storey bar and restaurant has a downstairs bar along with an upstairs bar that hosts a party atmosphere with food, DJ, cocktails, and dance areas.

Before Kate took up her role as Head Chef in The Oyster Tavern, she was head chef in the popular Fenn’s Quay. She was worked there from 2001, became head chef in 2006 and in 2008, she took over the running of the restaurant until July this year.

She sat on the Restaurant Association of Ireland council for two and half years and often appeared on ‘The Today Show’ with her most sought-after recipes.  Kate is currently a commissioner of Eurotoques Ireland and is looking forward to appearing in a new series produced by Mind The Gap productions in February.  

Kate is really looking forward to getting her teeth into something new and fresh in her new role in The Oyster Tavern. She said: “I am very excited about my new role and new adventure. The Oyster Tavern has so much history, and yet is new and current at the same time, so I'm delighted to be a part of something so unique.

“I have some great new recipes and ideas I am excited to showcase, so am thrilled with the opportunity. My ethos has always been 'Cork on a fork, with a few spoons over the border', so I always look to source locally where possible and highlight this on my menus, and so it's very fitting to have The English Market on my doorstep now and the opportunity to use all its fresh produce in my dishes.”

The Oyster Tavern serves food daily and prides itself on serving a top quality menu with ingredients directly from The English Market. Owner Alan Clancy said: “We are really happy with the reaction we have received so far for The Oyster Tavern, and we want to make sure we live up to our reputation for great food and drink any day of the week, so I am thrilled to have Kate on board, who no doubt will bring some great expertise, ideas and delicious food to the table.”
