Meet The Chef


Michael Chapman – Head Chef

At the stove is the talented Michelin-Starred Chef, Michael Chapman, formerly of the Royal Oak at Paley Street, Nr. Maidenhead. Michael came into cooking later than most, having previously studied mechanical engineering. It was cooking that he loved – through teaching himself as well as undergoing a baptism of fire with Marcus Wareing at Petrus, he was set on a love affair with food. Michael ensures that Hurley House Hotel menus feature only the freshest of locally-sourced ingredients from Berkshire’s best producers and farmers, while the fish and seafood are brought in directly from Brixham’s fishing boats daily.
