Ben Tish leaves Salt Yard Group

After 11 years with the Salt Yard Group, chef director Ben Tish is leaving the company to pursue a new solo venture.

He will leave the company at the end of the month, to be replaced by Dan Sherlock, who has been head chef of Salt Yard for the last three years.

Tish joined the company in 2006 as head chef of Salt Yard before going on to become executive chef and then chef director of the group, driving the food offer and helping to launch four further restaurants across London.

The Group has a collection of restaurants and bars in central London focusing on small plates and Italian and Spanish cuisine, counting Salt Yard, Dehesa, Ember Yard and the Opera Tavern among its portfolio. It opened Veneta at St James's Market in October last year.

Simon Mullins, co-founder of Salt Yard Group, added: "It has been a fantastic decade with Ben and we are all very excited about his new venture. Ben's departure is also a great opportunity for our extremely talented chefs to step into the spotlight and gain the credit they deserve."
