Executive Head Chef, Lumley Castle.
In my 27 year career as a Chef I have worked in and for some of the best restaurants, hotels and Chefs in the country, including The Capital Hotel in Knightsbridge, London; Le Champignon Sauvage in Cheltenham and The Lakeside Hotel, Windermere. I’ve also held the post of Head Chef, Private Dining at Gleneagles in Scotland.
In addition, I’ve also had the pleasure of owning my own Hotel and Restaurant with my wife Louise and running my own Country Pub.
My biggest career challenge to date has been taking over as Executive Head Chef at Lumley Castle in September of 2019 and I’m thoroughly enjoying working there.
Some notable career achievements have including being a National finalist in Craft Guild of Chefs, Young Chef of the year, where I came 3rd in the country back in 1997. I helped The Capital Hotel in Knightsbridge gain 2 Michelin stars, and gained 2 AA Rosettes and an entry in the good food guide cooking score of 5 for Virginia House. I also had a taste of personal fame when I appeared on the Great British Menu in 2018, an experience every bit as exciting and challenging as I’d imagined.
