Bristol boutique hotel, Berwick Lodge, has announced the launch of its new restaurant Hattusa, which will open its doors at the end of October.
Owners Fevzi and Sarah Arikan have brought acclaimed chef Paul O’Neill onto the project to take up the role of head chef, having gained extensive experience at Claridge’s and being awarded the prestigious Roux Scholarship in 2013. He also reached the semi-finals of last year’s National Chef of the Year competition.
The new restaurant’s name has been inspired by Fevzi’s home country of Turkey.
Berwick Lodge opened in September 2009, following five years of refurbishment, and was awarded five gold AA stars in July this year for its accommodation offering, consisting of 10 suites.
The restaurant already boasts two AA rosettes, but now chef O’Neill hopes to achieve a third, along with a Michelin star in the future.
O’Neill says: “I have a fantastic, enthusiastic team behind me who all share my vision and I am confident that together we can achieve this.”
