Two Michelin Star Chef Michael Caines Shropshire Restaurant Venture

Chef Michael Caines MBE Launches the new Townhouse Oswestry

Chef Michael Caines MBE Launches the new Townhouse Oswestry

This week saw the launch of Shropshire’s latest Restaurant launch move a step Closer. The venture in partnership with Two Michelin Star Michael Caines MBE invited key people from Oswestry and Shropshire to meet him and share the vision for what will become The TownHouse Restaurant.

The  team at Michael Caines Limited will be supporting and advising the new Oswestry bar and restaurant in the lead up to the grand opening in early December and beyond.

Michael Caines is one of Britain’s most acclaimed chefs. AA Chef’s Chef of the Year in 2007, and awarded an MBE in 2006 for services to the hospitality industry, Michael is the Executive Chef at Gidleigh Park, which was voted the number one restaurant by Sunday Times Food List in 2013. It is where Michael has earned his reputation – as well as two Michelin stars. Michael’s primary interest will remain at Gidleigh Park and The Townhouse will be added to his growing portfolio of consultancy interests which also include restaurants in Manchester, Chester and Exeter.

Last night Michael Commented “This is a really exciting project for me personally. The Townhouse is the first venture as Michael Caines Limited so we can focus purely on what matters – the food, the operations and ultimately the customer experience” continuing “I know Oswestry from my days travelling up to my venture in Chester and beyond, and when I was invited to view the property and the vision of owners Mike and Ollie, I was hooked. The designers have done an amazing job creating a real opulent, but relaxed feel – We want to make this style of dining accessible to all and welcome the locals and those who wish to travel to Oswestry.” adding “Unfortunately I cannot personally be in the kitchen at The Townhouse on a day to day basis but I very much look forward to regular visits and lending my support for key events.”

The agreement has seen Michael Caines Limited assisting The Townhouse in all operational areas including overseeing the appointment of key staff, kitchen design and layout, menu creation and online reservation systems among other things. The venue will be known as The Townhouse and branded “a restaurant by Michael Caines”

Mike Scott and Ollie Jackson, owners of The Townhouse said: “We are delighted that Michael and his team are sharing their experience and expertise with us to launch The Townhouse in Oswestry. The Michael Caines brand is synonymous with quality and whilst a Michelin star is not on our agenda Michael’s team will be overseeing the creation of all menus, including some of our own signature dishes, designed to complement The Townhouse’s informal, yet sharp interior design and fit with the local market using the best local ingredients. This is really big news for Oswestry and we hope that it will be a massive boost for the town’s restaurants as a “restaurant by Michael Caines” will really put Oswestry on the food map.”

James Day of Shropshire based Leisure Marketing Midlands LTD hospitality specialists added “Shropshire is blessed with lots of great local chefs, many acclaimed and supported by diverse suppliers – speaking with Michael and knowing his passion for excellence he won’t be disappointed – We look forward to welcoming him back and sharing a flavour of his cuisine”
