Head Chef

Damian’s fascination with food began on his grandparents' working farm.  Fast forward 30 years and his flavour creations draw on those fond memories, from Granny’s tablet fudge to his household staple - venison stew. Creativity is key to Damian’s success and he quotes: ‘There is nothing more exciting to me than when the first of a new season’s produce is ready!  This sparks my thoughts, and enthuses me to produce new creations allowing ingredients to “sing”, putting power to all of my plates."
