Yeoldon House Hotel owner and chef Brian Steele told us" Having spent 30 years in London, 17 of them as the executive chef of a four star, 300 bedroom hotel, my dream was to own my own country house hotel. We pride ourselves on producing high quality food using local ingredients wherever possible and offering guests a high level of service in a lovely setting. We want our guests to feel welcome and comfortable to return time and time again..."
