Colin’s career began at the young age of 13 helping his mum in local restaurants in Christchurch. After school he wasted no time in enrolling in Bournemouth and Poole catering college, one of the best colleges in England. This led him to Langans Brasserie in the heart of London, his first taste of pressure in a busy kitchen.
As years went by Colin developed a passion and understanding of what he wanted to achieve by working in various hotels and restaurants along the way. In 2007 Colin left Stanwell House Hotel in Lymington to join The Tuns making immediate impact by receiving Rosettes for the pub in his second year.
Colin prides himself on fresh local and seasonal foods and likes to add the occasional twist.
“A good meal is like a good movie exciting you along the way” he quotes.
