Top Chefs hosted by Niall Keating at Paradise Carriage Takeaway

Special Dinner - The Dining Room at Whatley Manor

Niall Keating, Executive Chef of Whatley Manor, near Malmesbury, Wiltshire, has invited a quartet of top British chefs from around the UK to join him at Paradise Carriage, for a fancy meal from the hotel’s casual and fun poshed-up 'food truck’ in a series of one-day pop-ups, during late April and May 2021. Each chef, collaborating with Niall Keating, will offer a signature main course – such as Pork Gyros from Paul Ainsworth, and a Birmingham Paella with Red Prawns from Brad Carter – along with a side dish, dessert and local beer (or soft drink) for £25pp. Food orders can be placed in advance for collection, but drive-by guests will also be welcomed on the day.

The pop-up guest chef schedule:

Paul Ainsworth - 24 April (Paul Ainsworth at No 6; Caffe Rojano; Mahé; Padstow Townhouse; The Mariners; Paul Ainsworth Academy – Cornwall)

Brad Carter - 1 May (Carters of Moseley – Birmingham)

Tom Sellers - 8 May  (Restaurant Story – Bermondsey, London)

Lisa Goodwin-Allen - 15 May  (Northcote Manor – Lancashire)

All at Whatley Manor - Easton Grey, Malmesbury, Wiltshire SN16 0RB
