<h2>Our New Head Chef</h2>

Our New Head Chef

We are very happy to announce that the arrival of our new head Chef Chris Cheah to The Knife & Cleaver.
Chris is an AA rosette starred chef, who has previously worked alongside Emily Watkins  at the Kingham Plough in the Cotswolds. Emily recently won the fish course on the Great British Menu 2014. Chris has also held rosettes as head chef of The George Hotel and Brassiere in Buckden. In his early career, he trained in Notting Hill Brassiere (3 rosettes), Lee Scott at Cotswolds 88 (3 rosettes), The Inn at Woburn (2 rosettes) just to name a few. In the short amount of time at The Knife & Cleaver, Chris has made a big positive impact on the quality of the food. With  the support of our existing  talented chefs, Chris has overhauled the bar menu and revamped the lunchtime Table d’hote menu.

Competition Winners

This month's Children's Colouring Competition was won by Grace aged 10, whilst this month's questionnaire winner was Mrs Hall from Ampthill! Graces colouring has been put on show in the pub for all to see and she will receive a prize too.
Good luck to all the entrants, perhaps it could be you next month!
Once again, we would like to say a big thank you to all those who visit and continue to visit The Knife & Cleaver. It is extremely gratifying to see the fruits of our labour, and it is a joy to serve such loyal customers.
