The head chef at a luxury hotel near Leamington is looking for people to join him in a business plan to set up a new restaurant.

Paul Foster leads the kitchen team at the Mallory Court Hotel’s restaurant the Dining Room in Bishops Tachbrook and has experience working for top chefs including Raymond Blanc and Sat Bains. This is his second head chef role.

Now he and his wife Rhiain, who works in human resources, have launched an online Kickstarter campaign to help raise the funds they need to set up their own restaurant in south Warwickshire.

Paul, who has appeared on the BBC’s Saturday Kitchen and Great British Menu, said: “When I eat out I like to feel comfortable and relaxed. This is what I want my restaurant to offer - an amazing standard of food and service in a place where you feel welcome.

“The aim of my Kickstarter is to get your help raising funds to make my dream a reality.

“Even if you’re not able to contribute, if you could just share my Kickstarter page with your family and friends I would be really grateful.”
