Our new Head Chef, Chris Ellis is taking food at 'The Killy' to a whole new level right now. Chris used to be Head Chef at our sister pub, The Ebrington Arms near Chipping Campden, where we've retained two AA Rosettes for seven years.
We were sad to see him go earlier this year but it was thankfully short lived as he called and said he wanted to come back into the fold. Although we're sad when good staff go, we're exceedinly proud when we've been a stepping stone in helping them reach their next role, or even a dream job. It sounds and literally was cheesey for our General Manager a couple of years ago - he had always dreamt of running his own cheese empire / deli and now he's doing it very successfully.
Chris decided the grass was in fact greener back in the 'happy dysfunctional family' of our Yubby pub team (a term coined buy one of our staff also) and we couldn't be more happy to welcome him home. Running alongside some creative a la carte dishes, Chris always has some pub classic dishes, but executed to the next level. If you order a pie for example, it's encased in proper homemade pastry and packed with the highest quality meat so we hope it's one of the best you've ever had.
But don't take it from us how good he is, like some sad gushing parentals... take it from the powers that be, the Chief Food Critic from The Oxford Mail and The Oxford Times, Katherine McAlister, and come and try us soon!
