Great British Menu's Charlotte Vincent has taken on her next starring role - as Head Chef at Hotel Meudon near Falmouth.

A Devonian by birth, Charlotte learnt to cook with the British Army, before spending 10 years working with Michael Caines at the Royal Clarence Hotel in Exeter and the two Michelin Star Gidleigh Park. Next, she took the helm at the award-winning Five Bells in Cullompton, where Charlotte steered the inn into the UK's Top 50 Gastropubs, while also making a name for herself competing on the BBC 2 show.

She describes her food as 'Modern British' influenced by Scandinavian and French cuisines, which will be reflected in the new autumn menus launching soon at the hotel.

Hotel Meudon - which reopened in May 2021 under new ownership following an extensive refurbishment - has already notched up a string of awards for its dining, including a Taste of the West Gold and Cornwall Tourism Awards Silver 'Restaurant of the Year'.

Commenting on her new position, Charlotte said: "I'm absolutely thrilled to be part of the wonderful team at Hotel Meudon. I'm incredibly excited to be drawing influence from the beautiful, abundant gardens here and using the wonderful larder that Cornwall has to offer. And working with the team to produce some delightful dishes inspired by the rugged beauty of the coast and Bream Cove."

Sam Banks, Hotel Meudon's General Manager, who has overseen the revival of this prestigious hotel, says that she is equally delighted to have Charlotte join the core team and is looking forward to helping her flourish in her new role.
