Meet the Team
Ben has been a Head Chef for over 10 years and brings with him a wealth of experience and skill.
He has held 2 AA Rosettes at both The Fuzzy Duck in Armscote and The Kings Hotel in Chipping Campden. Most recently Ben was Executive Chef at the Feldon Valley Golf Club. Ben really loves championing local suppliers and seasonal cooking, and we are very excited to see how he builds on and takes our kitchen forward.
Ben who lives in a village called Kineton with his wife Lucy and chocolate Labrador, Benson, said:
“Most of my career has been spent in kitchens around Stratford Upon Avon area, where I have enjoyed creating menus of mainly British inspiration, using many classic techniques, featuring great seasonal and local produce, with a few little twists along the way.”
“I’m now delighted to have joined the team at The Old Stocks. I hope to continue pleasing our guests and building our reputation in The Cotswolds by creating menus and dishes with as much character as The Old Stocks itself!”
Charlotte Tuck, Business & Brand Development Manager at The Old Stocks Inn, said: “We are so excited to have Ben on board as our new Head Chef. We are so proud of all we have achieved in the last 6 years working with our previous Head Chef, Ian and we were very keen for our next Head Chef to share the same passion for the local area, its produce, and a love for our business. Upon meeting Ben, it just clicked, and we knew immediately that he was the perfect person to build on our amazing reputation and take our food offering into the next phase of our exciting culinary future.”
