Our fabulous members, Storrs Hall, welcome new Head Chef, Paul Nicholson to The Temple Restaurant.

Andy Nicholson, General Manager at Storrs Hall explained: “We are excited to

welcome Paul to the team, property and the location, and feel together we can develop
the food across the hotel, from The Temple Restaurant, Tower Bar, Drawing Room
afternoon tea, private dining and our amazing weddings.

Paul has a strong background in great quality hotels and restaurants from Michelin
starred Lords of the Manor to The Dial House Hotel in the Cotswolds where he
accumulated a throng of his own awards. We were attracted to his passion,
consistency, humbleness, and knowledge which he wants to share with all the team.
In time we feel sure his food will add to the gourmet destination that is Cumbria.”

Paul is passionate about using local produce and is delighted to be joining a team who
are committed to working with local food producers and suppliers, and promoting
the best Cumbria has to offer.

Paul commented: “I’m thrilled to join Storrs Hall Hotel, it’s a beautiful hotel in an
amazing location, I’m hoping to continue and build upon the already excellent
reputation of the hotel with a focus on good seasonal cooking using the freshest and
highest quality ingredients.”

The Temple Restaurant at Storrs Hall is a genuine foodie’s delight in a prime setting
just metres from the shore of Lake Windermere. Sourcing food from local producers

seasonal ingredients of Cumbria.
