Nathan Eades, formally of Bromsgrove’s eponymous restaurant Epi at the Courtyard and various pop-ups across Birmingham, has joined as Head Chef at St Andrews Town Hotel in Droitwich Spa.
Nathan will oversee all aspects of the food offering at the 31 bedroom property; including the re-launch of the hotel’s restaurant, which is due to re-open 1st September 2015.
Drawing on experience from working with industry high profile names, Nathan will look to bring a similar dining experience to his much enjoyed menus at Epi; great food, without the fuss of fine dining. On his appointment Nathan commented ‘”I am delighted to join such a well reputable and established hotel such as St Andrews. With such fantastic produce on our doorstep, creating a ‘modern British’ menu in such idyllic surroundings will be an absolute delight. Our goal is to create not only a fantastic Hotel/Restaurant within Droitwich, but one within the Midlands and the UK.”
Dishes include ‘Tasting of Celeriac, Golden Raisin and Madeira,’ ‘Roast Fillet of StoneBass, Violet Potatoes, Cauliflower and Morels’ and ‘Gateaux Opera with Espresso Ice Cream’. The St Andrew’s Town Hotel was built in the 1820’s as the home of the Town Clerk of Droitwich Spa. The elegant Georgian building, which has been sympathetically extended and refurbished, and tranquil garden make you feel you’re in a country house retreat, yet only minutes away from the town centre and motorway network. The hotel also has choice of function rooms for both business and leisure customers; including a new Orangery which seats up to 150 guests.
