Matt Worswick announces departure from the Savoy Grill

Matt Worswick has left Gordon Ramsay's Savoy Grill at the Savoy hotel on London's Strand, where he had held the position of executive head chef since autumn 2020.

Worswick announced his departure on social media. He wrote: "So my journey has come to an end at the Savoy. Id like to thank all the staff past and present for all their hard work and dedication. I'd like to wish @gordongram [Gordon Ramsay] all the very best and continued success for the future."

Worswick was an early casualty of the Covid-19 crisis when his planned new role as executive chef at the Shanghai Edition, where Jason Atherton oversees three restaurants for Marriott International's lifestyle hotel brand, fell through in January 2020. Instead he launched premium food delivery service Cook + Thief during lockdown.

He was previously head chef at the one-Michelin-starred Latymer restaurant at Pennyhill Park in Bagshot, Surrey, where he spent nearly four years. After winning an Acorn Award in 2014, he joined Pennyhill Park in 2016 from Thornton Hall Hotel & Spa in the Wirral having started his career at the Crofters hotel in Lancashire.

He also previously worked at St Martins-on-the-Isle on the Isles of Scilly with Kenny Atkinson, and Le Champignon Sauvage in Cheltenham with David Everitt-Matthias. He was appointed to his first head chef position in 2013 at Glenapp Castle in Ballantrae, Ayrshire, where he won a Michelin star at the age of 26.
