Ex-Ramsay chef opens Cheshire pub

Adam Scally, a former chef at Gordon Ramsay's Maze Grill, has taken over the Cheshire Cheese at Shavington, Cheshire.

Originally opened in 1851, the pub stood empty for 10 months but was recently purchased by Greene King. Scally is now running the pub as a licensee.

Clive Chesser, managing director of Greene King Pub Partners said: "We are delighted that Adam has taken over the running of the Cheshire Cheese pub. We aim to work with the very best partners and we've been especially impressed with Adam's professionalism and passion for the pub. We're thrilled to be working in partnership with him to make the Cheshire Cheese a vital part of the community. It's only been a short period since it reopened under Adam's leadership but he's already doing exceptionally well and people are clearly impressed with what he has to offer."

Scally began his career at the Rowton Hall country house hotel and spa in Chester. In 1996 he moved to the Queens hotel and spa in Chester where he worked as head waiter for a year.

Taking a turn in his career, in 2003 Scally moved to Scotland to maintain yachts for Sunsail.

In 2011, after running a tavern in Angelsey and a fast-food restaurant in Hawarden, Scully started working at Maze under chef Gordon Ramsay. A year later, he moved to Thailand to work under chef Patcha Samed at the Funky Monkey Bar and Restaurant before moving back to London to take on a role at Jamie Oliver's flagship restaurant on Thredneedle Street, London.
