Elly Wentworth

Head Chef, The Angel

Having grown up in South West, Elly Wentworth has been cooking since she was 13 and studied Professional Cookery at City College Plymouth.

She first worked at the 3 AA rosette Tanners Restaurant in Plymouth under Chris Tanner and James Tanner and went on to eventually work in 3 different One Michelin Star kitchens – The Elephant under Simon Hulstone, The Bybrook at the Manor House under Richard Davies and Restaurant Hywell Jones at Lucknam Park.

With that wealth of experience, Elly understands that accomplishments only come with hard work.

She has proven this beyond doubt – having competed in the prestigious Royal Academy of Culinary Arts awards, Elly was one of only four chefs to be given an Award of Excellence and coming runner up in 2016 Professional Masterchef.

At The Angel Elly is focusing on using local ingredients in the best possible way, maximising the flavour, creating a unique dining experience.

With the history of The Angel, under the great success and leadership of Joyce Molyneux, The Holland Group very much wanted the next chapter of the restaurant to be led by one of the top female rising culinary stars.
