Well it has been a long time coming, but it finally looks like there will be an announcement from Gidleigh Park, Michael Caines & Brownsword Hotels concerning the future at the 2Michelin star property.
This site was one of the first to break the news about the 46 years old Caines’ plan to purchase & renovate Courtlands House in Lympstone, Devon. Now I can reveal further expected details of when Michael Caines will depart the countryside hotel to concentrate on his own project.
Brownsword & Caines are expected to make a departure statement tomorrow, May 26th, outlining the 2 star chef’s final day, which is believed to be in January 2016.
I’ve dined at Gidleigh numerous times over the years, & it’s probably been closer to the elusive 3rd star now, more than it has ever been. Unfortunately the hotel has suffered an number of senior departures over recent years, so will this be the watershed moment? Who knows.
As ever with these posts, I’d like to wish Michael Caines, Brownsword Hotels & all those connected with them, all the best for the future.
