The Seven Sins of Nick Deverell-Smith

Chef Patron, The Churchill Arms
Nick Deverell-Smith
Having recently re-opened this famous pub, 34 year old head chef and proprietor Nick Deverell-Smith has used his wealth of experience and extensive knowledge of working with the freshest seasonal ingredients to ensure that the menu will be a true talking point for both local and visiting foodies.

Named the Junior Chef of the Year in 2000, local boy, Deverell-Smith has gone on to work alongside some of the country’s most renowned chefs, including Marco Pierre-White, Gordon Ramsay, Marcus Waring and Eric Chavot, before becoming head chef at Soho House and then Dean Street Kitchen.

The Churchill Arms is his first solo venture and Nick Deverell-Smith has created a range of dishes that any of his mentors would be proud to put their name to. Taking its opportunity of produce sourced daily from the surrounding countryside and local village gardens, he visits his neighbour’s garden every morning to pick sage, rosemary and thyme.
