Double winners: Charlie Curran and Kelly Ware of Peppercorn

Abbeydale Road eatery named Westside Restaurant of the Year & Best Contemporary

When general manager Kelly Ware and head chef Charlie Curran took over Moran’s on Abbeydale Road, they had some big culinary shoes to fill. But just three years on, they’re more than living up to their predecessors.

When general manager Kelly Ware and head chef Charlie Curran took over Moran’s on Abbeydale Road, they had some big culinary shoes to fill. But just three years on, they’re more than living up to their predecessors.

Charlie has been a chef for over 25 years. After working his way up to head chef in celebrity chef Brian Turner’s London restaurant and working at various restaurants in Leeds and Sheffield, it was only a matter of time before his own venture received the recognition it deserves.

Kelly said: “All the standards are there – good, strong cooking and excellent service – but in an informal, laid-back atmosphere.”

Charlie added: “If there’s one thing we hear from our regulars, it’s that our food is consistently good. I think that’s the key. If you can get that right, it’s the perfect formula.”

Reigning triumphant as our double winners, it’s no wonder the pair were grinning from ear to ear.

“We’re elated!” continued Charlie. “We weren’t expecting the first award for Best Contemporary, so to get the second award is really amazing.”
