Three new appointments at Marsham Court hotel

The Marsham Court hotel in Bournemouth has announced a trio of new kitchen appointments, headed by Brad Instance as head chef.

Instance replaces Tony Shepard, who retired in December 2016 after 30 years in the role. He will be joined by Balan Ionut as sous chef and Damian Cydejko as commis chef.

He has joined Marsham Court from the Cottonwood Boutique hotel in Bournemouth, where he also held the role of head chef. He has previously worked at the town's Norfolk Royale, Wessex and Carrington House hotels.

Instance said: "Tony was here for a long time and was very much admired. But I also have a lot of experience and I am really looking forward to putting my own stamp on the Marsham Court.

"I actually met my wife Kim here in 1997. I was working as junior sous chef and she was working as a duty manager. Nineteen years on it's great to be back as head chef."

Romanian-born Ionut trained at the Hotel Ciucas in Poiana Brasov. He met Instance at the Cottonwood Boutique hotel.

Cydejko, from Poland, previously worked at Bournemouth's Royal Bath hotel.
