Chef Andrew Sheridan joins Craft Dining Rooms with big ambitions

Chef Andrew Sheridan has left the Stargazy Inn to join the Craft Dining Rooms in Birmingham.

Sheridan arrived at Cornish restaurant the Stargazy Inn back in April, having previously departed Sosban in Llanelli, which closed suddenly in February.

The chef will get underway at Craft Dining Rooms at the city’s International Convention Centre and the Craft English Garden as executive chef, The Caterer said.

The updated restaurant and bar is expected to open in January 2020 in partnership with chef Aktar Islam.

Sheridan’s British menu will include confit salmon, cucumber and butter sauce; glazed pig, apple and squash; venison, beetroot and mushroom; and Plymouth cod, clam and mussel chowder.

Sheridan said: “Having met Sam, Emma and Aktar, I could see the passion they all had for traditional British dining, I believe together we can create a dining vision which creates a journey from the 1940s to 2020s, we want to ensure that the menu invokes childhood memories and excitement and whilst the offering will be considered high quality this doesn’t mean it’s not accessible, relaxed and open to all.”

Emma Morgan, founder of Craft, added: “We are delighted that Andy has joined us to lead the restaurant moving forward and pioneer and embrace our concept of traditional British cuisine with modern execution, as a family business it’s important to us that our offering remains in line with our principles and our guests are exposed to an exciting, unique and tasty culinary journey.”
