After weeks of anticipation, The Old Stocks Inn in the heart of Stow on the Wold has revealed that Ian Percival will be its new Head Chef.
With over five years as a head chef all with two AA rosettes throughout that time, Ian has been in the Cotswolds area for the last four years most recently at the Kings Hotel in Chipping Campden. Previous to that his career was spent in Cornwall working at the St Moritz Hotel in Rock and two restaurants in Padstow.
With his early career being spent in Cornwall, Ian brings a love of fish and shellfish to The Old Stocks and describes his style as "modern, British". With his passion for using fresh, local produce and enjoying the creativity of cooking, he is looking forward to cooking great food, building on the reputation that he has developed in the Cotswolds and aiming for another two AA rosette in the near future.
The Old Stocks is a recently refurbished 17th-century coaching inn in the heart of the Cotswolds and the perfect base to explore the area or to just enjoy a delicious lunch, dinner or cocktail.
We have enjoyed some wonderful weather recently in the Cotswolds including the mini heatwave. We went out and about with the camera and took some pics of the summer so far!
