Five Bells Wickham Information

Description

In the Beautiful village of Wickham just outside Newbury, we are close to some local attractions such as the Newbury Race Course, LittleCote Roman Villa, Wessex Downs AONB or the Living Rainforest. More than just beer, we are infusing new life into the traditional pub drinks menu. Our list of fine wines is perfectly paired with our dining options and can be enjoyed by the glass or by the bottle. And if you’re craving a crisp gin or a bespoke made-to-measure cocktail, our bartenders are on hand to serve you a glass.

My journey started when I was 18, helping out a friend in their café, which lead me to discover my love for cooking and enrolling in college to study catering. Upon graduating from college, myself and my now wife, headed to Val d'lsere to work in a 5* ski chalet. This allowed me to cook 5-star quality food for a variety of guests while enjoying the snow resort surroundings. Once the season was over, we moved on to chase the sun in St Tropez, working as a chef for a family for four years. During this time, we sailed across the Atlantic, cooking everything from casual BBQs to extravagant dinner parties and experimenting with new cuisines at different stops in our adventure. Our adventures have taken us to some incredible places around the world, but eventually, it was time to come home and set up base in the UK. In 2008 I started working at Marco Pierre White’s, Yew Tree Inn and learned to work in a professional kitchen. This opportunity allowed me to work up the ranks and branch out into private dining where I received the once in a lifetime opportunity to cook for the likes of Her Majesty the Queen, Prince Phillip and the Queen of Sweden.
