Lanesborough Chef Honored by Queen Elizabeth


Great news for foodies in London today, and for one chef in particular: Queen Elizabeth II has appointed Paul Gayler, Chef de Cuisine at The Lanesborough as a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to the hospitality industry and charities. Announced as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honors on June 16th, members are selected for "outstanding achievements and service to society." Established in 1917 by Queen Elizabeth’s grandfather King George V, the MBE honors people who have served the country in civilian roles. The list of honorees is released each year on the British Monarch’s birthday.

Prior to joining The Lanesborough 21 years ago, Gayler served as Head Chef of Inigo Jones Banqueting House.

The Lanesborough is located on Hyde Park Corner in London. For more information, visit
