By Angela Green, Content Executive, H&C News: Fairmont Windsor Park appoint Head Chef at 1215.
Fairmont Windsor Park is delighted to announce the appointment of Tim Sheed as Head Chef at 1215. Bringing with him a dynamic perspective and accomplished skill set, Tim will lead the superb team and oversee the menu at the hotel’s fine dining restaurant.
With years of culinary experience across some of Britain’s finest luxury hotels and restaurants, Tim’s unbound creativity and impeccable attention to detail results in inventive dishes which truly highlight the finest locally grown produce.
Most recently, Tim held the role of Sous-Chef at The Tudor Room Great Fosters Hotel, helping the team achieve one Michelin star just months after reopening. Prior to this, Tim – winner of the Sussex Young Chef of the Year – worked under the guidance of acclaimed chef Matt Gillan at The Pass at South Lodge.
Tim said of his appointment: “I’m delighted to be leading the 1215 team at Fairmont Windsor Park and taking the fine dining offering to the next level. I want our guests to enjoy a meal that has a sense of familiarity, but through creative execution and exemplary customer service, is able to delight and leave lasting impressions.”
Ryan Nicholls, General Manager at Fairmont Windsor Park, welcomed Tim saying: “We are thrilled to welcome Tim to the team as Head Chef. We look forward to seeing him bring his extensive experience to elevate our fine dining offering on property. We have no doubt his creations will result in truly memorable dining experiences for our guests.”
With a key focus on speciality dining and honouring local produce, 1215 is set on Fairmont Windsor Park’s south lawn overlooking the private terrace and manicured gardens.
An intimate setting for celebrating special occasions, 1215 serves authentic, high-quality British cuisine, using only the finest locally grown produce from The Royal Farms, Windsor artisans and the hotel’s own kitchen gardens.
Steeped in history, the restaurant obtains its name from the Magna Carta – one of the most important documents in history – which was signed nearby in the grounds of Runnymede in the year 1215.
