Oddfellows Hotels has unveiled Ross Chatburn as the head chef at their Greater Manchester-based boutique hotel, Oddfellows On The Park.

Chatburn has joined the park side boutique hotel after leaving Manchester's Hotel Gotham after three years in the same position. He had previously opened Tea42, also in Manchester, and also worked as a sous chef at The Bells in Peover.

Oddfellows Hotels' collection has a strong focus on design, by restoring properties and using their local history as inspiration for each hotel.

Meanwhile, Chatburn's new role will see him lead the entire chef operation, which includes managing events and occasions to taking the film at The Galloping Major restaurant.

Chatburn said: "Oddfellows On The Park is an exciting move for me. I'm working within an independent hotel where I have the opportunity to put my mark on the menus and create some amazing dishes, inspired by the parkland setting.

"I grew up near Bruntwood Park and spent many happy hours here as a child. I'll be using the 120 acres of parkland I know so well to inspire my menus, not only through foraging but by creating dishes stimulated by it. I have a pigeon dish set to appear soon which perfectly encapsulates the colours of the park in all its autumn glory - with browns, reds, oranges and purple. I'm also in the process of creating a fir-needle vinegar," he added.

Jonathan Slater of Oddfellows Hotels said: "Ross is a passionate chef with a brilliant track record within the Manchester restaurant scene. We are delighted to welcome him to our Oddfellows family and are already tremendously impressed with his creativity."
