Award-winning chef buys award-winning Torquay restaurant

Bernd Wolf - the former deputy executive chef at Keele University - and his wife Sharon have bought the award-winning Orange Tree restaurant in Torbay, Devon.

The property, which has traded as a restaurant for more than 30 years, comprises a ground floor restaurant licensed for 60 diners in Parkhill Road, Torquay, where it is a short distance from the harbour, yacht club and Imperial hotel. It contains two-bedroom owners' accommodation.

The Orange Tree scooped the 2006-2007 Les Routiers Restaurant of the Year for the South West region.

It's a first venture for German-born Wolf, who moves from Warrington, in Stoke-on-Trent.

The Exeter office of Christie + Co sold the freehold off a guide price of £475,000 on behalf of Maitre D' Simon Storey and head chef. Tony Fagan.
