Dean Westcar – Restaurant Hywel Jones Head Chef
Dean joined the Restaurant Hywel Jones team from the Michelin starred Manor House hotel in Castle Combe where he was Sous Chef in the Summer of 2015. His talent was evident from the beginning and he was promptly promoted to Head Chef.
Dean and Hywel work closely together to develop the Restaurant Hywel Jones menus as well as function menus and other food outlet offerings. Deans modern creative perspective along with Hywel’s classical approach to food complement each other perfectly and result is some fantastic looking and tasting dishes.
As a passionate Springbok fan the only time Dean and Hywel don’t see eye to eye is when Wales play against South Africa at rugby!
Dean has competed as a finalist in National Chef of the Year and was awarded an Acorn Award in 2017.
