Young talented chef Thomas was born in Solihull and has accumulated a large body of experience in kitchens from Stratford-upon-Avon to the Marches. His previous experience includes establishments such as Mallory Court (3 rosettes), The Elms at Abberley (2 rosettes), and The Inn at Well End (2 rosettes and a Michelin Bib Gourmand). His Head Chef position at The Stagg Inn represents a natural progression for him to showcase his enviable abilities.
A diehard Aston Villa fan, his favourite food is a good pizza—or even crumpets with Marmite—though those are unlikely to appear on the Stagg menu any time soon!
He is a strong believer in using local produce—and local really does mean local. His favourite cooking experience is to take something from the garden and turn it into a beautiful dish—for instance, to pluck, wash, and transform strawberries into a delicious soufflé.
