Michelin-starred chef Adam Simmonds is to head up the kitchens at The Bath Priory for three months this autumn until the end of December.
Simmonds, who won his first Michelin star at Yynshir Hall in Wales in 2006 and his second at Danesfield House in 2010, will introduce a three course lunch menu, a three course a la carte menu and seven course tasting menu at the hotel, starting in October.
The Bath Priory, which is part of Andrew Brownsword Hotels, is home to the fine dining restaurant and The Pantry, which is a more casual set-up.
Simmonds appeared on the 2013 and 2014 series of the Great British Menu, and has also worked alongside Marco Pierre White, Raymond Blanc and Paul Heathcote during his career.
He says: “I’m delighted to be spending time at The Bath Priory and in the beautiful city of Bath, and look forward to welcoming our guests. Dining out should be an experience which engages all of your senses. You eat with your eyes first, then the aroma and burst of flavours hit you. But as a diner your experience is enveloped in the ambiance and service, and I look forward to working with the team at The Bath Priory to deliver all components to serve memorable meals during my time as guest chef.”
