For me, it is the realisation of a lifelong ambition to achieve a Michelin star and even more special that it has happened here at Coworth Park. Having been at Coworth for little over a year this amazing award is testament to the hard work that our team put in, and I am very proud that we have done so in a relatively short space of time”.

To be recognised amongst the most talented chefs and restaurants in the UK is a great honour, and this award recognises his outstanding commitment and the hard work that he and his team have dedicated to Restaurant Coworth Park. I am delighted Adam has fulfilled his dream of achieving a Michelin Star.
