Matthew Worswick Appointed Head Chef at The Latymer Pennyhill Park


Pennyhill Park, an Exclusive Hotel & Spa in Bagshot, Surrey, has announced Matthew Worswick as the new Head Chef of its award-winning restaurant, The Latymer.

Matthew joins Pennyhill Park from Thornton Hall Hotel & Spa in the Wirral where he has held the position of Executive Chef for the last 18 months.

At 28 years of age, Liverpool-born Worswick has already enjoyed a stellar career including winning a Michelin star at Glenapp Castle in Ayrshire at just 26 years old as well as working with David Everitt-Matthias at the 2 Michelin-star Le Champignon Sauvage in Gloucestershire.

Worswick began his chef career at The Crofters Hotel in Lancashire before moving to the Michelin-star St. Martins-on-the-Isle on The Isles of Scilly, working with Kenny Atkinson where he achieved a Michelin Rising Star award in 2007.  He has since gone on to secure his place as a semi-finalist on BBC MasterChef: The Professionals in 2010 and most recently a regional finalist representing the North East in BBC2’s Great British Menu 2015.

Julian Tomlin, General Manager at Pennyhill Park commented, “I am thrilled to welcome Matthew Worswick to The Latymer, a restaurant which has earned its reputation for delivering exceptional food and theatre.  I am very much looking forward to Matt bringing his creative energy and clear culinary vision to the team and developing an exciting new food offering to maintain the restaurant’s position as one of the finest in the UK.”

Matthew commented, “I am delighted to be joining The Latymer and the wider team within the Exclusive Hotels and Venues group that share my creative vision and support my ambition to deliver the very best – I am really looking forward to developing my food philosophy within such an established restaurant and cannot wait to get started!”

Danny Pecorelli, Managing Director of Exclusive Hotels and Venues added, “Matt is an incredible talent and his passion is infectious so I’ve no doubt he will create some show-stopping food whilst being a fantastic mentor to the team.”

At The Latymer, Worswick will now lead a 10 strong kitchen brigade at the fine dining restaurant and commences his role on 01 March 2016.
