In this business, rest is not an option, but change is: we’re delighted to announce the new Head Chef for The Olive Tree, Chris Cleghorn.

Chris has honed his exceptional cooking skills as the protégé of a trio of world renowned Michelin Star chefs: Heston Blumenthal (Fat Duck at Bray), Michael Caines (Gidleigh Park) and Adam Simmonds (Danesfield House). Chris has drawn influence from these culinary masters to create his own exciting style.

Along with the recently-announced introduction of new restaurant manager, Joss Roussanne, Chris’s arrival will take The Olive Tree’s quality of food and dining experience to a new and exciting level and Chris is impatient to start the climb.

“This is a great opportunity for me,” he says “The Olive Tree is a beautiful restaurant in an amazing hotel and  city. The Olive Tree serves excellent food, everyone knows that; the challenge is to take it to the next level. I know we can and I know we will establish the restaurant as Bath’s finest;  I just can’t wait to get started.”
