Chris Horridge rumoured to be leaving Waldo's – Cliveden considers restaurant restructure

Chris Horridge rumoured to be leaving Waldo's – Cliveden considers restaurant restructure

Luxury hotel group Von Essen is considering a restructure of the restaurant offering at Cliveden in Berkshire.

The company confirmed that it was looking to potentially reshuffle the operation at the hotel following industry rumours that Chris Horridge, head chef at the property's Waldo's restaurant, was leaving.

"We are considering a possible restructure at Cliveden and have no further details," a spokeswoman for Von Essen told Caterersearch.

A restructure of the operation at Cliveden could see the closure of Waldo's restaurant, where Horridge, who declined to comment, has been head chef for just under a year.

He joined the property last spring from the Bath Priory, where he held a Michelin star, replacing Robert Thompson, who had left after just eight months to set up his own restaurant on the Isle of Wight.

A Great British Menu contestant Horridge has garnered critical acclaim for his health-conscious approach to fine dining. At Waldo's he offers a nutritionally-balanced tasting menu which contains no sugar, dairy or wheat.
