Dining and Bars

Meet Darren our head chef, born in Cambridge and trained in one of the local colleges. Darren is proud to have put some of his team through the same education and training he received in the area. He also got engaged and married at the hotel! Darren has been part of the team for over 13 years, bringing a wealth of experience. His motto is 'the closer it is the more you can keep an eye on it'. This philosophy has been brought to the kitchen to ensure that a large amount of our products are purchased locally from private independent producers.
