Dan went on to hold the position of Head Chef at Berwick Lodge in Bristol, earning and retaining 2 rosettes. He now heads the kitchen at The Bay Hotel in Coverack.
“Being from Cornwall I love championing Cornish produce. That’s one of the many reasons I took the new challenge of The Bay Hotel in Coverack. My goal is to make The Bay Hotel the place to go in Cornwall. I’m back in Cornwall and as a proud Cornish man this is where I belong.”
