Stephen Oakley

Head Chef

With many years of experience as a Head Chef and 3 decade in the catering industry, Steve brings quality and consistency to Worplesdon View.

Having always been passionate about food since he was a boy, working in his local chip shop and cooking at home, Steve decided to become a professional chef. He completed his City & Guild’s qualifications at the same time as working for Forte Crest Hotels, picking up some amazing skills along the way.

Steve proceeded to work at a number of restaurants, golf clubs, private schools, wedding venues, conference and training venues to gain experience in every area of the catering profession. After several years, he decided to set himself a new challenge to hone his pastry skills with an NVQ Level 3 Professional Cookery - Patisserie.

Steve wanted to give something back to the elderly, so he decided to look at Barchester care homes, specifically Worplesdon View, by using his skills, knowledge and talent to help give the residents something to look forward to each and every day.

Steve wants to make sure the residents are supported through a healthy range of options, while taking their preferences and opinions into account so they can enjoy their food experiences during this latter part of their life.
