WEST ARMS AWARD WINNING CHEF
We are fortunate to have Celebrity Chef Grant Williams at The West Arms (ITV Britain’s Best Chef Finalist Dec 2011) as a key member of the team. He is passionate about his role as Head Chef and places his love of cooking at The West Arms almost as high as his love for his family. All you have to do is taste one of his meals to feel the love put into them. His beautiful dishes are made utilising locally sourced food such as Lady Kenyon of Greddington’s Home Grown Fruit and Veg; Josh Williams’ Free Range Eggs; Dave Keegan of Llanrhaedr ym Mochant’s Welsh Lamb and Beef and Rosie Davies edible flowers.
