Chris owns the proudly independent award winning ‘The Tickled Trout’ nestled in the idyllic Derbyshire village of Barlow.
Since opening in the summer of 2014, The Tickled Trout’s reputation has grown and is regarded as one of the best places to eat in Chesterfield.
Chris exudes a passion for food and his pedigree as a Chef is impeccable, training under Marcus Wareing at the 2 Michelin Star Pétrus restaurant in London before heading to the Michelin star Greenhouse restaurant in Mayfair. More recently, he managed the famous No.6 restaurant in Padstow in partnership with Paul Ainsworth before returning to his home county where he is now a ‘Chesterfield Champion.’
Chris couldn’t believe his luck when his old local came up for sale, and worked tirelessly with his team to create this stunning dining pub that his home village can feel proud of, using great ingredients sourced from local suppliers they know and trust.
