Ludlow Food Festival

The Original Festival for Food and Drink Lovers

Andrew Tabberner

Where: Castle Outer Bailey

Andrew is  Chef/Patron at The Gaerwan Arms, Anglesey, North Wales.

Having trained at University College Birmingham, and achieving a National Diploma level 3 in Professional Cookery, Andrew went on to work for Will Holland when he was at both his ‘La Becasse’ Restaurant in Ludlow, Shropshire and then ‘Coast Restaurant’ in Saundersfoot.

In 2015, Andrew won ‘Junior Chef of Wales’ – this then led to him joining ‘The Loft’ in the November of that year, then the following October he took over as Head Chef and impressively achieved two AA rosettes by January 2017. It was a good year last year, as ‘The Loft’ was voted 49th best UK restaurant by ‘Hardens Square meal’ and Andrew was also included in ‘The Caterer’ Magazine’s ‘Menu Watch!’

Andrew is proud to use many suppliers on the island of Anglesey.
