Restaurant appoints new head chef

Michelin-starred Birmingham restaurant Adam’s has appointed a new head chef with ambitions to take the fine dining eatery ‘to the next level’.

Husband and wife team Adam and Natasha Stokes opened Adam’s in 2013 and it quickly earned a Michelin Star, three AA Rosettes and most recently the number four rating in the Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards of best fine dining restaurants in the UK.

The restaurant’s new Coventry-born head chef, James Goodyear, is classically trained and joins following a period working as head chef at Hide in Piccadilly Circus, London.

James said: ‘“I can’t wait to get started, there’s so much potential here to take Adam’s to the next level. The young team of chefs are great, and I look forward to teaching them new techniques and working with them to continually improve their already exceptional skill levels.

“My culinary style is built around modern, European fine dining, so Adam’s is a great fit for me. Personally, this role is the perfect opportunity to get back to my roots in the Midlands and take on an exciting challenge. I’m also thrilled to be working with Adam Stokes - having someone like him to collaborate with and run ideas by will be brilliant.”

Adam said: “It’s the role of a head chef not just to cook, but to innovate, inspire and  teach. James will be a great addition to our talented team and we are all looking forward to working with him."
