Boutique hotel, Oddfellows on the Park in Cheadle has appointed a new head chef.
Ross Chatburn has joined to head up the hotel’s Galloping Major restaurant from his role at Hotel Gotham in Manchester where he was stationed for three years.
Prior to that he opened Tea42 in the city and worked as a sous chef at The Bells in Peover.
He will now take over the entire chef operation at Oddfellows on the Park from events, occasions and the main restaurant.
Commenting on his new role, Chatburn said: “Oddfellows On The Park is an exciting move for me. I’m working within an independent hotel where I have the opportunity to put my mark on the menus and create some amazing dishes, inspired by the parkland setting.”
Jonathan Slater of Oddfellows Hotels said: “Ross is a passionate chef with a brilliant track record within the Manchester restaurant scene. We are delighted to welcome him to our Oddfellows family and are already tremendously impressed with his creativity.”
Oddfellows On The Park is part of the Oddfellows portfolio, joining Oddfellow Chester in the group. Launching in 2017, Oddfellows On The Park is the restoration of a Victorian hall in the centre of Bruntwood Park and is now home to 22 bedrooms, Galloping Major restaurant, cocktail bar and The Pigsty salon.
It is the only hotel in the UK outside of London to be included in the global Design Hotels consortium and sits alongside hotels like Soho Hotel in London and Gramercy Park Hotel in New York.
