AN AWARD-WINNING chef has taken over a Mid Cheshire gastro pub.
Robert Kisby reopened Cabbage Hall in Little Budworth and proudly declared: “It’s a fantastic property in a splendid location.”
He said: “I’m just delighted, this is perfect. It’s certainly a big challenge, but I’m looking forward to making my mark and bringing my personal style to Cabbage Hall.”
Mr Kisby has spent the past 27 years gaining a reputation as one of the North West’s finest chefs.
He was the creative talent behind the food served in Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall and Urbis.
As chef-manager at Urbis’s hugely successful Le Mont, he led the restaurant to national and regional acclaim, winning 11 awards.
He then took his personal style of cuisine to the Cock O’Barton, a 400-year-old coaching inn near Chester, where his exceptional cooking brought the pub three awards in just 18 months.
Now, as chef/patron of his own gastro pub, Mr Kisby says he’s fulfilling a dream.
“I hope the many friends I have already made in the North West will come along to say ‘hello’ and see what we have to offer here,” he said.
