New head chef for The Manor

Stuart Forman, formerly of the acclaimed Feathers Hotel in Ludlow, has been appointed head chef at The Manor Arms in Abberley,  Worcestershire

Stuart, 36, has featured in popular publications such as the Great British Cookbook, the Great British Chefs Cookbook, and has won the National Breakfast Awards for the last seven years.  He is a regular at Ludlow Food Festival, giving cooking demonstrations.

He is bringing his bright, fresh modern British cooking to The Manor, which has two AA rosettes for the high standard of the cuisine.

“It’a a fantastic pub with a beautiful garden that attracts locals and visitors from all over the UK,” he says.  “I will be creating a new menu that includes pub classics for those who want a simple supper, and more elaborate, gastro pub dishes for those who want a gourmet meal.”

“Having spent 10 years at The Feathers, I felt the time was right to work in a new kitchen, and The Manor is the perfect place for me as there is great emphasis on high quality food, as well as creating a friendly and welcoming ambience.”

One of the first additions Stuart will bring to The Manor’s repertoire is a delicious afternoon tea (which has to be pre-booked).

“Afternoon tea has made a big comeback, especially when it includes an excellent selection of home-made cakes,” he says.

Stuart is married and has a five-year-old son, Lucas.  He lives in Stourport-upon-Severn.
