Coronavirus (COVID-19)

With the escalation of the COVID-19 global health issue we are conscious of protecting the well-being of our members, their guests, family, work colleagues and employees in the hospitality industry, and also of adhering to government directives. Sadly therefore all events arranged throughout Britain by the Bailliage of Grand Bretagne have been cancelled until further notice. Events, including postponed ones, will recommence at the earliest possible time that the situation allows.

He is delighted to be a member of the Chaine des Rotisseurs, loves mentoring, and is also involved with the Toque d’Or. He has recently been joined by:-

Thomas Kirby, Senior Sous chef at Penny hill Park: After Westminster College, Thomas has spent much of his time in Scotland, latterly as Senior Sous chef at the Apex international in Edinburgh overseeing the 2 rosette Heights restaurant and maintaining the accolade for 3 consecutive years.

Sarah Frankland, Head Pastry Chef: Sarah enrolled at Westminster for her pastry apprenticeship and her first position was working under Michelin starred Angela Hartnett at The Connaught and was Head Pastry Chef for Yauatcha Soho. Fortunately for us has arrived as Head Pastry Chef at Penny Hill Park. She is designing another dessert for us and is excited about it, so that augurs well for a special Experience.
