Paul also achieved the prestigious Michelin Bib Gourmand during his time at The Dunsforth with other awards including; an AA rosette and reaching the National Chef Of The Year semi-finals (twice!).

Hear from Paul himself…

“My favourite place to dine is one that’s relaxed, fun, fulfilling and beautiful – that’s why joining Alexander’s really appealed to me. We also share the same ethos around food – that fresh is best and local is key! I’m delighted to be working with the experienced team at Alexander’s on a brand new menu bursting with modern, well-executed food that’s packed with flavour and looks stunning – that’s what I’m all about.

“Alexander’s is simply stunning, it’s one of the best venues I’ve had the pleasure of working in – bringing decadence but with a relaxing and comfortable ambience. Together, our brilliant kitchen and passionate front of house teams will be bringing you wonderful experiences – whether you’re popping in for drinks and nibbles, a lovely set lunch or going all out on an a la carte dining experience.

“I’m really excited to be heading up the Kitchen at Alexander’s and we look forward to welcoming you to one of North Yorkshire’s premiere eating and drinking venues in the near future. A memorable, exciting experience in the heart of beautiful Skipton awaits.”
