About us

Gladwin Brothers was hatched in the summer of 2012 by three brothers: Richard, Oliver and Gregory Gladwin. Using their three unique skills; one being a farmer, the other a chef and the third a restaurateur, they all wish to share their love for great food, foraging, farming and the ability to bring a slice of the countryside into the city.

Our three restaurants: The Shed, Rabbit and Nutbourne serve up some of the most exciting seasonal British produce harvesting from our own farm & vineyard in Nutbourne West Sussex, our friend’s farms nearby, hedgerows and the coast to capture the ever changing fresh taste of Britain today.

We call our concept Local & Wild
