The Eden Hotel Collection has appointed Adam Brown as executive chef at the Mallory Court hotel in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.
He will take up his post on 1 August, joining the hotel from Brockencote Hall hotel in Worcestershire, also part of the Eden Hotel Collection, where he has been head chef for five years.
As well as heading up the hotel’s flagship restaurant, the Dining Room, which has three AA rosettes, he will oversee the Brasserie, the hotel’s casual dining option, and the conference and wedding business. The hotel is also opening a new luxury Elan spa in spring 2017, which will include an all-day dining option serving fresh, seasonal menus.
As well as training at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay and Le Champignon Sauvage in Cheltenham, Brown has spent much of his career at Eden hotels. Having worked as sous chef at Mallory Court, he was appointed head chef of the Arden hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon before becoming head chef at Brockencote Hall in 2011.
Brown said: “Returning to Mallory Court at such a key time in the hotel’s development is a real opportunity. I am a big believer in local provenance and sustainability and, with that in mind, I look forward to taking the hotel’s award-winning cuisine to the next level. I will be creating innovative British menus using the very best ingredients from Warwickshire and the surrounding area’s local larder.”
Mark Chambers, managing director of the Eden Hotel Collection, said: “We are delighted that Adam Brown is taking on the position. This new appointment is due recognition of the exceptional culinary flair and passion that Adam demonstrates on a daily basis in the kitchen.”
