Renowned chef Andrew Scott has joined Devizes-based Wadworth as their executive development chef.

Andrew has joined the brewery to help relaunch and manage the variety of food offered within their managed pub estate.

He has spent his entire chef career in Michelin Starred kitchens, initially training at the prestigious Mallory Court, Lords of the Manor and L'Enclume, before moving to the Curlew restaurant in East Sussex where he achieved a Michelin star in the 2014 guide.

He represented the central region on BBC2's Great British Menu in 2016 and then moved into the world of food development and customer experience at Miele, a global appliance brand as head development chef.

Speaking about his new role, Andrew said: “I’m really looking forward to getting round the pubs and meeting the chefs and business partners so that we can get on with creating great food and service ready for when we reopen.

"People will be eager to get out and eat with family and friends so it’s key that we get some fresh new dishes as well as those firm favourites customers always love ready in time for when we can all come back together."

He also tweeted: "I’m determined to make 2021 a good year relaunching the food offering throughout the managed estate and bringing a fresh outlook to this amazing family business that’s steeped in history."

Nick Young, operations director for Wadworth, added: “This is great news for Wadworth and shows our conviction for the future. Having Andrew on board, with his expertise, background and passion for food will enable us to make pub food more exciting and take our menus to a new level”.
