The Seaview Hotel secured a culinary first for the Isle of Wight when the restaurant was previously awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand under head chef Bruce Theobald.
Bruce continued to work at the hotel for 3 years before going on to become head chef at Danesfield House, the prestigious country-house hotel located in Marlow.
Head chef Bruce Theobald, said:
“It’s been a fantastic learning experience working at Danesfield House Hotel and Spa which has over 90 rooms but I just felt the time was right to look for a position back on the Island to spend more time with my family and to the hotel that has meant so much to me.”
Bruce fell in love with the Island 5 years ago when he moved down and has been commuting to Marlow rather than relocate.
“I take my chef’s hat off to Tom Bull who has done a fantastic job moving the food operation in the right direction and retaining the Michelin Bib Gourmand. It was a pleasure to meet the new team and it felt very lovely to receive such a warm welcome back.”
Hotel Operations Manager, Diana Chiverton said:
“Bruce was instrumental in transforming the food offering at the Seaview Hotel. He has vision, determination and a big heart. I really look forward to the next stage and pushing the hotel forward.”
