In April 2003, Russell & his wife Elena opened their own restaurant back in Dorset. Russell believes the long hours and hard work have made all the difference, but he’s careful to protect his staff. Russell’s food takes its lead from the seasons, utilising the best produce available, much of it from the South West region. Concise menus and great attention to detail from the canapés and breads right through to the petit fours are the hallmarks of his cooking. A three choice lunch menu, five choice dinner menu and a six course tasting menu make up the offer. Russell has also just retained his Michelin star and he also retained his 3 AA rosettes in 2011. Sienna is the smallest Michelin starred restaurant in the UK.
