Meet Our New Chef

Adam Tyrer

Adam joins us from New Zealand.

"I have lived in many areas in New Zealand and I get my interest in food and cooking from my mum. We have always lived on lifestyle blocks (small holdings) and raised our own stock and grown vegetables at home, so I have always had an interest in using the ingredients to their full potential. I left school at 17 as I knew then that education was not the way forward for me, all I 
have ever wanted is to be a chef and be the best I can be at it."

We are currently developing our new menus for 2016 See website for more details.
