Jamie Coleman has joined the Beach at Bude hotel in Cornwall as head chef from the same role at the Michelin-starred Masons Arms in Devon.
Coleman joins the 16-bedroom boutique hotel and restaurant, owned by Susie Daniel, having previously worked as a chef de partie at Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's in London, and as a senior chef de partie at Gidleigh Park under Michael Caines.
He said: "I am looking forward to making my mark at the Beach at Bude. Having grown up in Devon, I have a real passion for the West Country and believe the south west has some of the best ingredients on offer in the UK."
Daniel said: "We are delighted to welcome Jamie to the team and have been receiving great feedback since he joined us. He brings a wealth of experience and fresh ideas to the role and we are excited to see how he develops our restaurant here at the Beach at Bude."
