Meet our chef
Our Head Chef, Phil Kent, oversees both The Bull & Swan and The William Cecil. He has been an important part of our hotel group for a number of years.
He joined the team in Stamford for the opening of The Bull & Swan in 2010. Phil shares our passion for using locally sourced ingredients and is keen to make his menus simple yet enticing.
He made a serious reputation for himself as Head Chef at The Bull & Swan for the consistent quality of his dishes (not least for his famous scotch eggs!) before bringing his imaginative flair and expertise to bear at The William Cecil. Recently Phil has been made responsible for both properties, allowing him plenty of scope to exercise his creativity & skill.
Phil loves cooking Game. In fact, he won the title of Professional Game Chef of the year 2015 following a live cook off at the CLA Game Fair!
