Malin, who previously ran the Malbec Restaurant in Stratford-upon-Avon, will be implementing his passion for fine wines into his new role by introducing a carefully-chosen selection to complement his own dishes.

“Making great food accessible to everyone is what is important to me,” said Malin. “At the Bluebell customers will see my full potential and experience some fantastic dishes.”

Bluebell owner Leigh Taylor added: “We are thrilled to have Simon on board and are confident that his vast experience and ability to uphold the most prestigious accolades will have a major impact on the Bluebell’s already impressive reputation.”

The restaurant has been listed for three consecutive years in the Good Food Guide and featured in the 2010 Observer Food Monthly Awards.

Manson head chef

Alan Stewart is taking over as head chef at British brasserie Manson in Fulham on 1 October.

Stewart, formerly head chef under Tristan Welch at Launceston Place, has created his own menus to reflect the best of local and seasonal produce. His previous experience includes two years at Chez Bruce under Bruce Poole.

Manson is situated at 676 Fulham Road and is sister to award winning pub The Sands End in Fulham. Prices range from £6 to £9 for starters, £11 to £28 for main dishes and £6 for desserts.

Laurie Stewart, Alan’s sister, is restaurant manager, having previously been at La Trompette.
