Peter Eaton

Executive Chef

Peter worked previously at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and at The Vineyard, both two Michelin-starred restaurants.

He joined the launch of The Woodspeen, from the beginning in 2014 and now oversees our entire culinary operation. Sometimes you will find Peter teaching a class or two in our cookery school as well.

His encyclopaedic knowledge of food, combined with his leadership, make him our perfect Executive Chef.

Andre Marchand

Senior General Manager

Andre’s father was a great French chef, whose creativity and passion for food inspired him to pursue a career in hospitality himself.

After working in his native country and in Asia, Andre moved to the United Kingdom, where he has been tirelessly inspiring and developing our teams and looking after our lovely guests.

He worked from the very start on the launch of Michelin star The Woodspeen, with Director Alex Fasoli MCA. Andre guides the teams and operations of the Start Inn, with a great emphasis on service and great hospitality.
