Chef Roberta Hall arrived in 2016 with a wealth of experience under her belt. Including 3 years under the patronage of Michelin-starred Scottish chef Tom Kitchin at The Kitchin, before going on to open the sister restaurant to The Kitchin, Castle Terrace Restaurant run by Chef Patron Dominic Jack where she spent six years there. Originally as Sous Chef before becoming Head Chef. As well as her fiancé Shaun and a level of drive and energy that has to be seen to be believed she has brought with her to the Abbot’s Elm a genuine passion for – and love of – fresh seasonal local produce.
She combines modern & classical cooking techniques with an almost fanatical attention to detail to produce stunning and deceptively simple-looking dishes on her daily-changing menus.
