Stars in Their Eyes at Mallory Court
Warwickshire's only Michelin starred restaurant has retained the top international accolade for its food , held only by the world's top chefs, for the 12th year running.
Mallory Court Hotel in Leamington Spa is amongst a small amount of restaurants in Britain to hold the industry's rarest accolade.
Mallory Court's Michelin star is held by its Head Chef Simon Haigh, making him the finest chef in the Coventry and Warwickshire region.
Staff at Mallory Court waited with bated breath for the famous Michelin guide to be announced. A press release confirmed that Simon and his team had yet again achieved star status, prompting celebrations at the hotel in Harbury Lane.
Simon shares this prestigious award with other highly skilled chefs include Heston Blumenthal, Michael Caines and Gordon Ramsay.
“We are very proud to have retained the Michelin star for the 12th consecutive year” said Simon.
“It is always a relief to read the press release to confirm this! Although there was leak last week I still had to read it on the official web site, just to make sure.
To retain the star takes a lot of hard work and dedication from many people. From all the boys in the kitchen, the guys who wash up, the gardeners for providing such wonderful fresh produce and not forgetting all the staff who work at the front of the hotel looking after the guests! It is definitely a team effort and not down to any one individual. As always, we will not rest on our laurels but try to move forwards, developing where possible to ensure we stay at the very top of our game.”
Since Simon’s arrival at the Leamington Spa hotel in 2000, he has maintained consistently high standards to ensure that Mallory remains one of the best establishments in the region, having held a Michelin Star personally for no less than sixteen years – a remarkable achievement.
Mallory Court is part of the Eden Hotel Collection - a group of hotels privately owned by Sir Peter Rigby, who has appeared in The Times 100 rich list after making his fortune in IT solutions. Mallory Court is a destination for jetsetters from all over the world who fly in to dine, landing at the hotel’s helipad.
In addition to running the kitchens at Mallory Court, Simon is also the Director of Food and Beverage for the Eden Hotel Collection which includes Buckland Tout-Saints Hotel in Devon, The Kings Hotel in Chipping Campden, The Arden Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon, and Brockencote Hall in Worcestershire. Two spa hotels were also welcomed into the group at the end of 2011, The Greenway Hotel and Spa in Cheltenham and The Mount Somerset Hotel and Spa in Somerset. Simon works with the chefs at all hotels to create menus brimming with imagination and innovation, working to an ethos of sustainability and traceability.
