Meet Our Executive Chef

Our Head Chef, Leigh joined the Kilver Court team in 2014 and heads up the Harlequin Cafe and Pantry Restaurant where he develops interesting dishes using spelt as a core ingredient.


"I started my career as early as 13 years old, working for a local butcher in the village I grew up in, here in Somerset. I studied in Kiental in Switzerland, followed by the Emirates Academy in Dubai and London where I learnt from many internationally renowned chefs. Since then, my career has taken me all over the world, from Somerset to Hong Kong, giving me an international and eclectic approach to food and dining.
 
I'm very proud to hold multiple awards for my food, including two AA Rosettes and the Certificate for Merit for Culinary Excellence for which I have been awarded 7 times.
 
At Kilver Court, our select group of local, artisan suppliers provide us with delicious, fresh produce which my team and I enjoy turning into interesting, seasonal dishes"
