Cotswolds-based pub and hotel The Fox Inn has appointed former Lords of the Manor chef Matt Weedon to head up its kitchen.

Weedon took the reins of the 16th century Chipping Norton pub late last month and will soon overhaul its menu.

New dishes will include ‘Steak & Hooky Ale’ shortcrust pastry pie; arancini risotto balls; and Old Hooky beer bread with Marmite butter.

Weedon won his first Michelin Star at Glenapp Castle in Scotland. He then took on a role as executive chef at Lords of the Manor in the Cotswolds, where he was awarded another star in 2008.

Weedon took over the three AA rosette Lamb Inn in Oxfordshire, alongside his wife, in late 2014, before being appointed executive chef of Ellenborough Park, near Cheltenham.  

“I’m excited to be joining the team at The Fox and looking forward to driving the food and service forward using the very best of local, quality suppliers to produce a menu fitting for our location here in the Cotswolds,” says Weedon.

The owner of The Fox, brewer Hook Norton, plans to use its own brews to complement the menu where possible, and operations manager Gerard Winder says that there are “exciting plans for new menus and more beer and food matching.”
