Originally from Southampton, Robin worked at some of the UK’s top restaurants – Biebendum and Pied a Terre. After landing in Australia in 2000, Robin opened his own restaurant in Fitzroy, Interlude, that quickly attracted many accolades and awards.
He won The Age Young Chef of the Year award in 2005 and decided on a sea-change, moving to Apollo Bay with wife Kate to open Wickens Provedore and Deli.
Robin started at the Royal Mail Hotel in 2013, adding his trademark creative whim, innovation and sustainability. Today, Robin has his name on the restaurant door – Wickens at Royal Mail Hotel. His creativity was instrumental in the design of the restaurant, kitchen and dining room. A visit to Wickens will allow guests the opportunity to see Robin’s hands on approach in the kitchen.
