Chris is back in the West Country and is heading up the kitchen at The Headland Hotel in Newquay.

Christopher Archambault, previously Head Chef at Southernhay House Hotel in Exeter, relocated to Guernsey to take the helm at Vista Hotels, primarily at Fermain Valley Hotel, a 4* 2 rosette property. Chris then moved to West Sussex as Head Chef of The Kennels at Goodwood.

In his down time he is a food photographer, food writer, trainer, product developer and demonstrator.

Chris arrived in Devon early 2005, fresh from a long tenure with London’s Caprice Holdings and eager to get back to the source of fantastic produce.

Chris sums up his style as, ‘simple with a personal touch.’  ‘I rejoice in the fact that we live and work in one of the most naturally beautiful parts of the world bursting with flavour from coast to coast.  Ever more populated with producers, suppliers and chefs that share common concerns.’
