Tom Shepherd has been appointed as head chef at the Michelin-starred Adam’s restaurant in Birmingham.

He joins from The Development Kitchen, a pop-up restaurant run with his friend Adam Degg, and previously worked as a development chef at the two Michelin-starred Restaurant Sat Bains in Nottingham.

Adam’s is run by husband and wife team Adam and Natasha Stokes and was originally intended as a two-year pop-up.

The restaurant is now a permanent feature of Birmingham’s booming dining scene and is one of five restaurants in the city​ to hold a Michelin Star.

It was also ranked 52nd​ in the Estrella Damm National Restaurant Awards top 100 list​in June.

Shepherd says he is excited to return to his home town and work alongside Stokes.

"I feel that I am joining the best restaurant in Birmingham which has the perfect platform to achieve our targets," says Shepherd.
