tom

Tom Kerridge is a proud English man with two michelin stars who finds himself as one of the recognised faces within the pub industry. Bits and bobs of television and cookery demonstrations are always done with heartfelt honesty and a smile.

raymond-blanc

In 1984 Raymond created a hotel and restaurant in harmony when he opened Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. Belmond Le Manoir is the only UK country house hotel to have retained two Michelin stars for over 30 years. 

 Raymond has nurtured some of the country’s most respected chefs including Michael Caines MBE, Marco Pierre White and Ollie Dabbous.  Some 33 of his protégées have gone on to win Michelin stars for themselves.

 Raymond is a best-selling author and his most recent book – Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons: The Story of a Modern Classic – is Raymond’s personal tour of Le Manoir through the four seasons.  

angela-hartnett-new

monica-galetti

She became a household name in 2009 when she joined the team on MasterChef: The Professionals as a judge. Previously she held the position of Senior Sous Chef at Le Gavroche, before leaving in 2015 to pursue her solo career.

candice-brown

Candice Brown is the Winner of The Great British Bake Off 2016. Born in North London, Candice grew up in the pubs that her parents ran – and that she famously immortalized in gingerbread for her most talked about showstopper – always chipping in when needed, be it pulling pints or mopping floors.

Taught to bake by her beloved Nan, Candice strives to emulate her bakes, often referring to her treasured recipe book and hand written notes. Candice loves everything vintage and her sense of style captured people’s attention on set. This, coupled with her passion for sumptuous, decadent food that you want to dive into is what sets her apart.

atul-new

Atul started his career with The Oberoi Group working in Delhi. In 1994 he opened the Tamarind restaurant and achieved a Michelin Star in 2001, making him one of the first Indian chefs to receive the accolade.

Since then he has opened numerous award-winning restaurants – Sindhu at The Compleat Angler and on board P&O cruises; Indian Essence in Petts Wood. Atul’s portfolio across the world includes the second Benares in Madrid, Rang Mahal at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai and more!

stephen

He then opened Oliver Peyton’s Coast as Head Chef in Mayfair and in 2001 Stephen opened The Walnut Tree Inn, which was awarded a Michelin star the following year.

Tom Kitchin and Dominic Jack have collaborated to create menus of fresh, home-cooked dishes using quality, seasonal, local produce, with the support Head Chef, James Chapman.  The food available reflects the pub’s ‘From Nature to Plate’ ethos and all butchery is carried out at the restaurant, with produce arriving straight from land and sea, from the same suppliers that provide sister restaurants The Kitchin and Castle Terrace with the highest quality ingredients. 

paul

Born in Southampton, Paul’s love of hospitality came from growing up in his Mum and Dad’s Guest house. His career really began when he moved to London at just 18. He gained tremendous experience working for Gary Rhodes at ‘Rhodes in the Square’, Gordon Ramsay at the 3 Michelin star restaurant on Royal Hospital Road and Marcus Wareing at Petrus in the Berkeley hotel. He then went on to establish two successful restaurants and accommodation in Cornwall –Michelin starred Paul Ainsworth at Number 6, Italian influenced Rojano’s in the Square and 6 boutique bedrooms at Padstow Townhouse.
 
In 2011, Paul appeared on the BBC2 TV series Great British Menu. Competing against some of the nation’s top chefs, Paul represented the South West with his dessert ‘A trip to the fairground’ which won the finals and made it through to the prestigious banquet table.
Paul’s unique cooking was recognised with a Michelin Star, awarded in October 2012 and a 4th AA rosette in September 2016.
Paul and his team work closely with local farmers, fishermen and artisan suppliers to create the dishes at ‘Paul Ainsworth at Number 6’ and ‘Rojano’s in the Square.
In 2014 Paul and his wife Emma took on their biggest project yet by converting an 18th century townhouse hotel into 6 individually designed suites. The ‘Padstow Townhouse’ opened in December2015 and now completes Paul’s Padstow experience. The beautiful Townhouse offers spacious suites with luxury bathrooms, kitchen pantry/honesty bar and in room spa treatments. It has since been awarded 5 star AA Gold.
