Born in Falmouth, Cornwall Wayne spent his formative years in Warwick where his parents ran a pub giving him an early insight in to the Hospitality industry. After leaving school Wayne spent three years training at Stratford upon Avon College before moving to London to work in some of the most prestigious establishments in the capital; The Savoy, Claridge’s, Monte’s of Sloane Street and L’Odeon, working under culinary luminaries John Williams, Alain Ducasse, Bruno Loubet & Anthony Demetre. On returning to the Midlands Wayne honed his kitchen management skills taking his first Head Chef role at Nailcote Hall Hotel in Berkswell before taking over the reins at Stratford’s celebrated Welcombe Hotel. A stint at The Wood at Rowington gave Wayne a taste of the Gastro Pub market and this was followed by a move to New Hall Hotel near Sutton Coldfield where he spent four years as Head Chef. A seasoned competitor, Wayne has reached the Semi-Finals and the National Finals of both the National Chef of the Year competition and The Roux Scholarship as well being awarded The Annual Award of Excellence by The Academy of Culinary Arts. Now Wayne is realising a lifelong ambition to own and run his own restaurant in the town where he has spent so much of his career. His philosophy on food is simple: “work with great, fresh produce and work in tandem with the seasons. Work with passionate and like minded producers and suppliers. Most of all make the most of the bounty of fantastic produce available in this Country and never be afraid to let the ingredients speak for themselves.”
