A chef boasting a wealth of experience in the kitchen has returned to his hometown to work at The Bull Hotel in Fairford, in a bid to improve the boutique hotel’s food offering.
Jamie Woods, who has had stints at The Swan at Bibury and The Four Pillars Hotel at Cerney Lakes, has been employed by current managers of The Bull Hotel, Ian and Liz Summers, and completes a series of changes undergone by the team.
The hotel offers 22 bedrooms and has an extensive history dating back to the 15th century, and now is focusing its efforts on offering a selection of premium foods in the heart of the Cotswolds.
Jamie has been a keen cook since a young age, after being inspired by the likes of celebrity chefs Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay.
Speaking to the Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard, Jamie said: “It may sound cliché but having things fresh and in season is very important to me.
“The Bull Hotel has so many great food sources around it, would be a shame not to use them.
“We have Fairford beef on our doorstep from Andrew Butler Butchers, lamb from nearby Coln St Aldwyns, trout from Bibury and eggs from a great farm in Welford, what more could a chef want?”
