Stewart Sharkey

Head Chef

I have been a chef and catering manager for many years, both in England and in Italy.

My ethos is simple; I believe that the food and service we provide should be on client-driven, with the emphasis on a healthy and balanced diet based on their likes and dislikes, not ours.

I recently joined Barchester and am very much looking forward to encouraging my team to strive to the best and by doing so improve the daily lives of our most important asset... our residents.
