“I’m excited to have be promoted to this new role and love working right on the beachfront. This is definitely one of the South Coast’s most impressive locations and I’m keen to make sure our service and food is as good as the view!”

Creating culinary delights is Ben Brown – an inventive and ambitious chef who we’re happy to have on board. Having trained at the Farnborough College of Technology, Ben worked for the Banquets Group for over eight years and has even cooked for restaurants in Australia and New Zealand. Whether home or away, Ben has always lived and worked by the coast and as such shares our passion for seafood – to our delight!
