A Suffolk pub has taken on a new award-winning head chef.

The Greyhound Inn, Pettistree, was named as one of the top 50 pubs in the UK by Estrella Damm.

It reopened in 2022 after a refurb by four friends: former advertising man Will Orrock, interior designer Cassidy Hughes, chef Harry McKenzie and George de Vos.

"We're absolutely thrilled to announce that Adam Spicer is taking over the kitchen as Head Chef of the Greyhound," posted the Greyhound Inn on their social media. 

Mr Spicer also shared the news in a post that read: "I'm really forward to shaking some pans in this beauty."

Mr Spicer was formerly the Head Chef at Retreat East, the Suffolk countryside restaurant with rooms. 

Prior to the role, the chef worked as sous chef at the Tackroom and the Jockey Club Rooms in Newmarket.

The winner of the Cambridge Chef of the Year (2017) was also head chef at All Saints Hotel, which received two-AA-rosettes during his tenure.

The pub has released Mr Spicer's local and seasonal sample menu which includes: deviled duck hearts, raw fallow and wild rabbit.
