Adam Smith is set to leave Michelin-starred Burlington Restaurant at the Devonshire Arms in July to take up a new role at Coworth Park, which is part of the Dorchester Collection, Ascot.

In 2013 Adam made the move to The Devonshire Arms, Bolton Abbey to head the Burlington Restaurant, which has since gained 4AA rosettes and won The Yorkshire Post Hotel Restaurant of the Year award.

Adam Dyke, GM The Devonshire Arms Hotel and Spa, said: "We would like to thank Adam for his hard work and dedication over the past few years, he is an exceptional talent and we wish him all the very best for his continued success in the future." He spent most of his career at The Ritz where, over a nine year period, he worked his way up from second commis to executive sous chef. In a glittering career he has won gold in the World Skills in Canada in 2009 as well as winning the Roux Scholarship in 2012 and the UK final of the Bocuse d’Or at Hotelympia. Perhaps the most resounding accolade of all though comes from his former boss, executive chef of The Ritz, John Williams, who called him the best chef that has ever worked under him.
