Elliot Hill has been named the new executive chef for The Chester Grosvenor to oversee its freshly-rebranded Arkle restaurant.

Hill's appointment follows the departure of Simon Radley​, who left The Chester Grosvenor in October 2021 after more than 30 years at the five-star hotel.

Arkle, which is described as 'a refined dining experience delivered the Cestrian way', will replace Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor and is set to open in March.

As well as overseeing that restaurant space, Hill will also run the hotel’s two AA Rosette restaurant La Brasserie, as well as the afternoon tea and banqueting functions.

“Elliot is a creative and ambitious chef," says Richard Grove, The Chester Grosvenor’s general manager.

"He is passionate about food and the development of those working with him, his enthusiasm is contagious, and I am confident he will inspire the whole team and be a real asset to the hotel.”

Hill was most recently head chef at Panoramic 34 in Liverpool, where he earnt and retained an entry in the Michelin guide; and was previously head chef at Oddfellows Chester, where he executed the rebranding of the food business and its restaurant, Cultivated.

He was a finalist in 2021’s National Chef of the Year competition, and a semi finalist the previous year.

"The Chester Grosvenor has a reputation for outstanding cuisine, and we’re looking forward to Elliot enhancing that reputation as he moulds our offering to fit with his vision,” adds Grove.
