“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”   

                                                 Virginia Woolf

The story so far...


Our outlook and empathetic leadership style has evolved over a combined 40 years in hospitality. We have learnt from some of its foremost leaders and worked with many of the greats. 


We have stood shoulder to shoulder with some of the most influential industry shapers, from Jeremy King, Chris Corbin and Nick Jones to Graydon Carter, Richard Caring, Skye Gyngell and Juan Santa Cruz.


Seb started out washing dishes and peeling potatoes in a neighbourhood restaurant. Laura created her own successful café and deli in central London.


Both ended up opening and running landmark restaurants in London, New York and Los Angeles.

"If there is a more charming or accomplished couple working in the restaurant trade, I don’t know of them. Seb and Laura are quite simply the best at executing a restaurateur’s vision...."

Graydon Carter, owner, Monkey Bar New York, Waverly Inn

"Seb is genuinely a joy to work with. He entered Spring like a breath of fresh air! Took the time to really get to know all the staff as well as the business, then presented us with concrete solutions ( some large some small) that have helped us transform the way we do things without in anyway compromising our integrity!
I can only describe it as a completely successful pleasure!"

Skye Gyngell, Owner of Spring Restaurant

"Laura Montana is the operator you must have on-board if you are launching a restaurant and the person who will continue to ensure that the launch will transition seamlessly into an excellently run operation. Laura is inspirational within the hospitality industry but also a very safe pair of hands – not often two qualities that sit together."

Lilly Newell, Executive Director Caprice Holdings and The Birley Group
