Chef Will Holland has formed his own company and will open his eponymous restaurant in spring 2014 in an as yet unidentified site in the town of Bridgnorth in Shropshire.
Holland, who earned a Michelin star before the age of 30 at La Bécasse, in Ludlow, is expected to transform the property before it launches.
He said: "I have formed my own company and I am extremely pleased that my offer on a property in Bridgnorth has been accepted. The restaurant will have my name above the door and we plan to open in Spring 2014. This is a very exciting time for me and all involved in this project."
"I am delighted to be remaining in the county of Shropshire, where I have lived for the past seven years. I will be able to continue to build on the relationships I have with local food producers, farmers and suppliers."
Chef Will Holland has featured regularly on James Martin's ‘Saturday Kitchen Live' programme. He became the Midland's Regional Champion on BBC TV's ‘Great British Menu' and beat The Hairy Bikers in a televised food challenge for their ‘Food Tour of Great Britain' programme.
He has also won several awards including an Acorn Award and three AA rosettes.
He began his career at Homewood Park Hotel, in Bath, where he was employed by Chef Gary Jones, who is now Raymond Blanc's executive head chef at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons. He moved to Gravetye Manor Hotel, in West Sussex, before working under Alan Murchison at L'ortolan Restaurant , Berkshire.
He was appointed chef-patron of La Bécasse Restaurant, Ludlow in 2007 and earned a Michelin star in 2009, while still under the age of 30.
