Allister Bishop, South Sands' new Executive Chef recently took the leap of relocating to his original home of South Devon. Encouraged by the knowing lure of fresh beach side produce and divine country living, Allister brings with him decades of experience having been based in London, working at some of the most reputable establishments the city has to offer - Harrods, Le Meridien and Hilton to name but a few.
Allister’s style is simplistic, understandable and succulent. He believes it is essential to pull together dishes that look stunning on the plate but can also be easily comprehended by the diner - something he picked up through years of working with master chefs such as Thomas Kellar and Massimo Bottura, creating high quality menus and events for celebrity clientele.
Allister and his team’s plan for South Sands Hotel is to work closely with the local community and beyond, forging ahead as a stand out destination hotel and beach side restaurant that specializes in fine wine and wholly memorable, sensational dining.
