Meet the Chef

Our head chef Ben Wood has had a passion for cooking from an early age. His love of Spanish food is inspired by the simplicity and quality of the ingredients used, and he aims to add his own signature touch to each dish using the latest cooking techniques.

At 25, Ben has been cooking in professional kitchens for the last 9 years, going from washing up and basic prep duties in the kitchen of El Gato Negro Tapas under Chef Patron Simon Shaw, to working with the Game of Thrones production and at Michelin recommended restaurants in West Yorkshire.

Ben went on to work in some of Glasgow’s finest restaurants including The Gannet and The Ox and Finch, and is excited to be back in West Yorkshire and producing delicious dishes with his own personal twist.
