Phil Yeomans named executive chef of Lainston House

Exclusive Collection is delighted to announce that Phil Yeomans has been appointed as Executive Chef of luxury country house hotel, Lainston House.

The hotel group have welcomed Phil back to the property and into his new role, having previously held a position as Head Chef of the hotel for seven years (July 2005- July 2014).

Phil brings with him over two decades of experience in the hospitality industry, having worked with respected companies in the UK including: The Dorchester, Harvey Nichols, Soho House, further afield at The Fearrington Inn in North Carolina, USA, and as Head Chef of the prestigious Coral Beach Club in Bermuda.

Phil Yeomans says of his appointment: “Winchester is my home and I’m delighted to return to my roots with my family, in a position that will be an exciting new challenge for me. Lainston House has an excellent reputation and I’m looking forward to building on this and helping the team to grow.”

Phil’s style of cooking is best described as modern British, combining his classical training with the employment of modern techniques, resulting in the creation of flavourful yet clean and delicate dishes.

Lainston House embodies Phil’s passion for working with local suppliers and food producers and he aims to bring this to life throughout the hotel as his menus develop over the coming months.
