Nestled in the heart of Rozel Valley, and set in seven acres of woodland, the beautiful Grade II listed Château La Chaire Hotel offers an instant sense of escape.
Indeed, the hotel’s setting was one of the factors which attracted Tony Brazendale to apply for the role of head chef – a position he took up in January.
‘It is a stunning location,’ he said, ‘and my goal is to ensure that the food matches the quality of the setting and represents the beautyof our surroundings. In keeping with the building and the environment here, I would describe the food as fresh and vibrant. The cooking is simple, with an emphasis on flavour, but with little modern twists that modernise and elevate recognisable dishes to a fine-dining level.’
