Cotswolds hotel Cowley Manor has appointed Alan Jones as its new head chef.
Jones most recently spent five years as head chef of D&D Almeida. He also had a stint at Lucknam Park restaurant in Bath. The South West-born chef began his training at City of Bristol College before training under Michelin-starred chef Richard Neat.
"I could not be more excited to join Cowley Manor and return to my roots; not only as I am originally from the South West but also to be back in the inspirational surroundings of a country house estate. To work with the 55 acres of land, create a vegetable and herb garden of my own and forge relationships with the local suppliers and farmers will be a real privilege." said Jones.
Cowley Manor opened in 2002 and is operated by A Curious Group of Hotels.
