Bowser will be replacing Nick Brodie – who has been at Llangoed for six years – and has previously cooked in some of the finest kitchens in the UK including Whatley Manor, The Square and Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons.
He has spent the last two and a bit years as head chef at Dormy House, where he most recently launched MO, a new concept restaurant.
Bowser said: “I’m really looking forward to starting my new role at Llangoed Hall. I can’t wait to get stuck in and put my own stamp on the offering. The opportunity to work at this award-winning restaurant in a stunning location is one I couldn’t pass up to showcase modern British food that I’m passionate about.
“I have been very lucky in my career, working in some of the finest kitchens in the UK and this next step is one I am really excited about.”
Sergio Martinez, general manager of Llangoed Hall Hotel said “We’re so excited to be welcoming Sam to the team this month. We know that he will work hard to create something truly unique that will really put us on the map and encourage diners from near and far.
“Sam has already been working on the new menu and I’m looking forward for everyone to see what he does with our offering.”
The new menu will be available from the 18 January 2020.
