New head chef Maddie Crombie looks to make her mark with fresh new menu

One of Gloucester Road's most loved independent bar and restaurants is welcoming the arrival of their new head chef Maddie Crombie. 

Having previously worked at The Earth & Stars in Brighton, The Horse & Trap in Auckland, and having Galli legends Martin Stone and head chef at Poco Ian Clark as mentors, Maddie is now working her magic at The Gallimaufry

Pushing to include more vegetarian and vegan-centric inspired dishes, the new menu boasts a charred courgette and romesco sauce sharer dish, hake fillet main with butter bean ribollita, and desserts such as a chocolate ganache with strawberries and shortbread. 

Speaking about her new menu, Maddie says, "The ingredients we are using really are at centre stage and for me, it's important that they are the best we can use at that time. The team here are all creative and passionate, inspiring each other to come up with the most interesting way we can present the ingredients. It's a true team effort here." 

The Gallimaufry serves brunch, lunch and dinner, seven days a week.
