Gloucestershire-based Tudor Farmhouse has appointed Joseph Williams as its new head chef.
Williams specialises in seasonal British cuisine using quality locally-sourced ingredients, and will head up an “experienced” five-strong team at the restaurant.
Prior to joining Tudor Farmhouse, Williams gained experience working under two “highly acclaimed” Michelin-starred chefs, Shaun Hill at The Walnut Tree in Abergavenny, as well as BBC Two’s 2018 Great British Menu winner Chris Harrod at The Whitebrook in Monmouthshire.
He then moved onto his first head chef position at The Saracen’s Head Inn at Symonds Yat for two years.
Williams said: “I am delighted to have joined the team here at Tudor Farmhouse and I’m hoping to bring my own modern style to their menus.
“This is also the chance for me to develop myself, and the team so we can continue to seek new ways to showcase the area’s seasonal ingredients and surprise and delight our guests.”
Colin Fell, proprietor of Tudor Farmhouse, added: “We are thrilled to welcome Joe to our team. He brings with him such energy and some really exciting ideas which our guests have already been enjoying from salt cod brandade and octopus to pumpkin tart with cinnamon and whisky ice cream.”
