Bjorn van der Horst returns to the capital to head up food offer at the Rosewood London

Bjorn van der Horst, the Swiss-born chef who previously made a name for himself on the London culinary scene, is returning to the capital as director of food, beverage and kitchens at the Rosewood London.

He arrives back in London from the Maldvies where he has spent two years as the group chef and food and beverage director of Soneva Fushi by Six Senses.

In his new role he will be responsible for all the food and beverage at the Rosewood London, which will be rebranded from the Chancery Court hotel in October following a £85m refurbishment, including the restaurant, bar, events and private dining.

"I am thrilled to join the Rosewood London. It promises to be one of the most exciting openings of 2013 and the food and beverage will play a huge part in establishing the reputation of the hotel. I have a passion for quality, innovation and sustainability and I intend to ensure that Rosewood London is one of the most exciting places to drink and dine in the capital."

Van der Horst left London after Eastside Inn, the restaurant he opened with his wife Justine in Clerkenwell closed after 16 months, due to financial difficulties.

He had previously worked as chef patron of La Noisette, part of Gordon Ramsay Holdings, and achieved a Michelin star as executive chef at the Greenhouse restaurant. He has also worked in France and New York.
