Mike Powell, our Head Chef

He started working at the Hotel when he has been 14 while his father was the Head Chef . He quickly learnt everything his father knew about food and would often look up to his father and called him Chef at work and at home.

From the age of 16 he studied catering at college for two years, where he also worked in a Two Star Michelin hotel in France called the Hotel de Pyrenees during his summer holiday. The following year he worked at the 5 Star Berkley Hotel in Knightsbridge, London which has a 3 Rosette restaurant. Once he had finished his studies he worked in a couple of hotels in Bournemouth, which unfortately no longer exist before returning to the Durley Grange in 1999 and becoming the Head Chef so his father could retire.

All this knowledge and experience has resulted in developing a great passion for cooking and for food which is hardly surprising as he had the best teacher and role model to learn from.

He has designed a Breakfast menu with a huge range of dishes as well as 13 different 4 Course Dinner Menus. These change on a daily basis, meaning that those of you who stay for a long period of time, you can have a different Dinner every Evening.

He also has experience creating and preparing food for all types of dietary requirements. You just need to tell us what they are at the time of booking.
