Meet Our Chef

Chef John Bakker has most recently served as Executive Chef of Gili Lankanfushi, a retreat destination voted #1 Resort Destination in the World in 2015. In addition to his time in the Maldives, Bakker has made notable stops in Scandinavia, Germany, France and the United Kingdom, working in some of the most impressive kitchens in Europe. He is returning to his hometown roots to take the helm of the Elora Mill Hotel & Spa kitchen and leverage his vast international knowledge to bring something truly unique to the Elora experience.

The Penstock Lounge

The Penstock Lounge is unmatched in character. Stone-chiselled steps lead from the main restaurant level to a bar truly like no other. A dramatic penstock pipe that once supplied the water required to run the mechanics of the mill imposes itself in the space, re-purposed to now house bottles of the finest liqueurs, wines and spirits. Fascinating raw details juxtaposed against high-end finishes create the ultimate ambient experience. Set apart from all others thanks to its unforgettable view of the gorge, with harvest tables that warmly encourage social time, grabbing a drink will never again be the same.

Penstock Lounge Hours: 12PM - 11PM (SUN - THURS), 10AM - 1AM (FRI - SAT)
