John Wood to consult on new restaurants for Dormy House hotel

One-time Michelin-starred chef John Wood has been appointed as food and beverage consultant at the Cotswold's Dormy House hotel, which is currently closed while it undergoes a £10m refurbishment.

Wood will join head chef Paul Napper to create three distinct dining concepts for the hotel in preparation for the hotel's re-opening in September.

Together, the two chefs will create new menus and ensure new operational procedures are in place.

Wood described the work currently being undertaken at Dormy House as "one of the most exciting renovations in the UK" for 2013.

"The food and beverage offering is going to take on a new lease of life and we have some very exciting ideas planned. Paul Napper is an exceptionally talented and dedicated chef and his desire to not only source local produce but local talent is fantastic."

Wood set up a food and beverage consultancy after working at the Savoy, the Dorchester, the Grove and Cliveden, where he gained a Michelin star. He has also worked in South Africa, Dubai and Asia.

Napper, who has worked at Dormy House for more than four years, said: "John has a lot of experience, so it is great to have him on board helping us to create something amazing and unique in the Cotswolds," he explained.
