Chef Patron – Matthew Tomkinson

We are absolutely delighted  to announce that Mathew Tomkinson joined us in March 2019 as Chef Patron. Matthew joins us from the award winning The Terrace restaurant at the Montagu Arms, Beulieu

Instead of following the traditional chef training route, Matthew went on to study for a degree in Hospitality Management whilst working at a vegetarian restaurant – an experience which cemented his desire to turn a hobby into a vocation.

Matthew set his sights on fine dining and embarked on a four-year stint at Michelin starred Ockenden Manor. During this time, he won the 2005 Roux Scholarship.

Matthew went on to win his first Michelin star for the Goose then a Michelin star for The Terrace Restaurant, at the Montague Arms

Matthew takes great pleasure in his everyday work and it’s that passion that will always shine. He believes in the total guest experience and how important it makes them feel.  Matthew has forged a highly identifiable style that mixes classic French technique with his love of home-cooked food.

We can expect Matthew to provide us with richly comforting dished laced with touches of innovation.
