About Gloria's Lounge & Cafe
Chef and Owner Ben owned his reputation through working in high end restaurants in London for almost 2 decades such as, Bluebird Restaurant at Chelsea, 100 Wardour Street at Soho, National Gallery and Boisdale at Canary Wharf.
Ben moved to Margate from London, since has started his new project Gloria's Lounge & Cafe which instantly was a huge success!

Even though I was attracted to gastronomy from very young age, it was only when I moved to London that I got exposed to professional cooking. Instantly felt at home, I trained and engaged in classic British cooking and based on arose foundations of basic and advanced techniques and gastronomic principals, worked and learned highly critical criteria of traditional & historic dishes.
Pastry and baking has been passion of mine and a huge part of my career and I must add, I have been fortunate to earn a living through my true passion! Fundamentally 2 decades in the kitchen has taught me so much about myself, my style and how to share this excitement with my guests.
Each new project shows me that there is absolutely nothing else I would rather do!
