Since 2003

Regarded as some of the most prestigious chefs in the North West, working in a multicultural kitchen, I learned to cook dishes from a variety of traditions of food. It was a challenging but rewarding experience that taught me the value of diversity and collaboration.

“”Opening a kitchen is a thrilling challenge that demands courage, perseverance, and a fierce love of cooking.”

TESA bring a wealth of experience in creating mesmerising food in high-profile locations. 

Led by Adrian Ioan, TESA’s passionate and incredibly talented team have transformed a string of restaurants into respected five-star establishments – most recently, The Dog at Peover and Bar 27.

The self-confessed perfectionist cites Raymond Blanc as the most inspirational person that he has ever worked with – enjoying a Head Chef role within Brasserie Blanc for over four years in a career that has spanned over two decades.

Our scintillating new menu has just been unveiled – but the word menu really doesn’t do our fabulous range of eclectic dishes justice.

It is a vast array of meticulously prepared creations that will satisfy any palate and appetite – leaving you begging for more!

Hernighan Eat & Drink in association with TESA is set to transform the local culinary narrative.

As a chef, sweet and spicy food à la TESA holds a special meaning for me. It embodies the art of balancing contrasting flavours to create a harmonious culinary experience. The sweetness adds depth and comfort, while the spiciness brings excitement and a hint of adventure. Crafting dishes in this style allows me to unleash my creativity and create memorable taste sensations for my diners.
