Tom Kerridge appoints new Head Chef at Kerridge’s Bar & Grill

Tom Kerridge has announced a new appointment at Kerridge’s Bar & Grill, his London restaurant located within the prestigious Corinthia London.

Tom Childs, previously the Sous Chef at the restaurant, will step into the role of Head Chef as Nick Beardshaw departs to establish his own restaurant. Nick has worked with Tom Kerridge for 14 years, serving as Head Chef at Kerridge’s Bar & Grill since its opening in 2018, and gaining notable success on the Great British Menu.

Tom Childs has worked at Kerridge’s Bar & Grill for five years, bringing with him an impressive background that includes roles at No. 6 by Paul Ainsworth, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, and the former Hedone in Chiswick.

Tom Kerridge said: “Nick’s departure has provided the opportunity for Tom Childs to step into the Head Chef role, for which he is more than ready. We have worked on a totally new menu which launches this month. Tom has created a series of exceptional new dishes which both retain the Kerridge’s ‘DNA’ while fully embracing the best of British seasonal ingredients with a nod to classic cookery. I know will be a big hit.”

Tom added “I’m thrilled that Nick Beardshaw is starting his own restaurant. We’ll greatly miss him and his input, and wish him all the best – he will always be part of our team.”
