Former head chef of Michelin-star Orestone Manor sets up new venture

Darren Bunn, former head chef of Michelin-star Orestone Manor Hotel, has acquired the lease of the Chasers Arms free house and restaurant in Stokeinteignhead, Devon.

Located near Newton Abbot, The Chasers Arms is a 70-cover restaurant and public bar set on grounds extending almost 1.5 acres. It is a traditional Devon longhouse dating back to the 16th century that includes cob elevations and a steeply pitched thatched roof.

The lease, which previously belonged to Simon and Alison Ede for two years, was sold to Bunn by the Exeter office of property agents Christie for an undisclosed sum.

Christie's Michael Easton said: "Bunn has purchased a 15-year lease on the Chasers Arms from Simon and Alison Ede, who have retained the freehold interest as an investment. Given his expertise and talent as a chef, the Chasers Arms can only go from strength to strength."

Bunn, who gained a Michelin star for the 40-seater restaurant at Orestone Manor Hotel earlier this year, also won a Michelin star in 2004 as chef patron of the Greyhound in Stockbridge, Hampshire.
