Steven Tuke, formerly at The Chester Grosvenor with Simon Radley and head chef at the Oddfellows Hotel, has joined Flat Cap Hotels in the role of executive chef.
Steven has worked previously at Chester Racecourse, Malmaison, The Individual Restaurant Company, Stanneylands Hotel and Ascot Racecourse. His priority is managing the kitchen team and overseeing all food at the recently re-launched Vicarage Freehouse & Rooms in Cranage.
The Vicarage is the first property to be launched by Flat Cap Hotels, a family run hotel group founded by brothers Oliver and Dominic Heywood in 2015.
Earlier this year, the group acquired the former Crown Court in Knutsford. This second site is currently undergoing a complete refurbishment and development, with the first phase due to open in early 2017.
Steven will be managing the food operation at both properties “I’m delighted to be part of the team at Flat Cap Hotels; we have some exciting plans for The Vicarage and have re-launched the menus, including the afternoon tea which is receiving great feedback.
I’m looking forward to putting the restaurant on the map in the region. The focus for The Vicarage is regionally sourced food that tastes delicious and leaves customers with a smile.” www.thevicaragecheshire.com
