Heligan pizza oven

We were approached by Nicolas Legendre, the Operations Director of Heligan Gardens  in Autumn 2016 with a view to installing a pizza oven in an outdoor space they were creating adjacent to the restaurant. Almost 2 years on, we finally handed over the project after an extensive remodelling of the outdoor seating area and waiting for funds to come through from various fund-raising ventures.

We installed the oven in June 2018 whilst the Heligan in-house carpentry team built the counters, prep areas and roof. The outdoor cooking area also features a DrumBQ next to the pizza oven to relieve pressure on the extremely busy restaurant and let the chefs experiment with a wider range of baked goods cooked at high temperature.

The Heligan pizza oven is a unique conception of French oven manufacturer Four Grand-Mere, who have designed an unusual transverse wood-fired oven, one that is wider than deep, enabling the chef to access all parts of the oven easily and without setting one pizza behind another. Available in two models, the 1350 and 1500 both can be specified in either chamotte or brick or as standard or raised height.

We have now established a large working team with its own vision for our third decade. The award-winning garden restoration is already internationally acclaimed; but our lease now extends into well over 200 acres, leaving the project far from complete. We intend Heligan to remain a living and working example of the best of past practice, offering public access into the heart of what we do. 

Our contemporary focus is to work with nature, accepting and respecting it and protecting and enhancing the variety of habitats with which our project is endowed.”  read more here about the history of The Lost Gardens of Heligan, near Mevagissey ,Cornwall.
