Mark Sargeant

Mark Sargeant has worked for some industry legends (Nico Ladenis and the late Peter Kromberg among them), but he will forever be remembered as Gordon Ramsay’s loyal servant. ‘Sarge’ was head chef at Claridge’s for seven years before going solo in 2011 and opening two restaurants in Folkestone: Rocksalt and The Smokehouse.
