Paul Evans has joined Mallory Court, part of The Eden Hotel Collection, as head chef.
He was most recently responsible for heading up the three AA Rosette Burlington Restaurant at The Devonshire Arms Hotel in Yorkshire, and departed the hotel in May.
Now as part of his new position, Evans will oversee Mallory Court’s flagship restaurant, The Dining Room.
Prior to his role at The Devonshire Arms, Evans worked at Lords of the Manor, The Crown at Whitebrook, L’Enclume and The Waterside Inn.
The Burlington Restaurant was his first head chef position.
He says: “Mallory Court has a longstanding reputation for being one of the finest hotels in the country. It has always been a property that I admired and, when the position of head chef arose, there was no doubt in my mind that this was the property at which to make my mark.
“With home-grown ingredients and a team of fantastic local suppliers, my aim is to create menus that deliver an exciting dining experience for our guests, ensuring that the restaurant retains its outstanding reputation as one of the finest dining establishments in the area.”
Mallory Court is part of the nine-strong portfolio of hotels under The Eden Hotel Collection umbrella.
