Chef Takeover with Thomas Palmer

We’re twisting things up on the last Saturday night of every month at Cobbles with a new take on our Kitchen Invasions – Chef Takeover!

Same concept – we’ll be turning over our kitchen to a renowned and highly skilled chef who will takeover for one night only, demonstrating their culinary talents and providing you with a fantastic menu to choose from!

The first chef in this awesome series of events is Thomas Palmer.. Tom has been in the kitchen since his school days, starting life at Front of house before moving to the kitchen and then taking up formal training in college..

With almost a decade of experience under his belt, Tom has worked in restaurants run by some well known chefs including Michael Roux Jr and Tommy Heaney, where he has honed his skill and developed his unique style of cooking.

Tom leans toward a non pretentious fine dining style of cooking, where the focus is on the flavours and presentation. Tom uses traditional flavour pairings with a modern twist!

His menu includes some familiar classics (check out the desserts) but expect the unexpected and expect to be wowed!

So, if you like food and fancy treating your tastebuds then come and join us in our beautiful 16th Century barns in the Vale and treat yourself to a real taste sensation!

The menu will be an a la carte menu with prices starting from £6.95 for starters, £12.95 for mains and £5.95 for desserts.
