Ynyshir

Gareth started his cooking career aged 16, working in kitchens in the north east before deciding to move to Rutland where he worked at Hambleton Hall and worked upto Junior Sous. He decided to move back to the North to work at Seaham Halgareth wardl, which had just gained its star. He stayed here for two years before taking his first Head Chef role at Hart’s Restaurant in Nottingham.

Gareth’s next step was Restaurant Sat Bains, which when he joined as Sous Chef was 1 Michelin Star – he was part of the team that achieved the second star. To add to this RSB came in the San Pellegrino Top 100 Restaurants, whilst being a regular in the top 10 of the Good Food Guide.

Gareth joined Ynyshir in 2013 as the new Head Chef. In his first full year, he was awarded his first Michelin Star and then gained 4AA Rosettes shortly afterwards, the only place in Wales at the time to hold the accolade and now currently holds 5 Rosettes. http://ynyshir.co.uk/
