The date for the funeral of renowned chef Chris Oakes, who died suddenly last month, has been set for 27 July.
The funeral will be held at All Saints Parish Church in St Ives, Cambridgeshire, at 1pm.
The wake will be held at Trinity College Cambridge, where Oakes worked as head chef.
Kit Chapman, director of the Castle, said Oakes put the hotel on the gastronomic map. He worked at the hotel from 1983 until 1986.
"Chris was a very quiet, modest man," said Chapman. "He arrived at the hotel as sous chef and when the head chef suddenly left, I offered him the top job. He initially refused to take the position as he didn't believe he had the ability, but he was a wonderfully careful, highly competent and skilled cook."
Family flowers only.
