Miguel Tenreiro

General Manager & Head Chef

Miguel Tenreiro is of Portuguese origin but grew up in South Africa where he trained at The Castle Hotel in Kyalami, Johannesburg under chef Jade Sullaphen.  He moved to the UK in 2007, working for the Way family at both The Royal Castle Hotel in Dartmouth under head chef Henri Gunter and as Head Chef at the historic Luttrell Arms Hotel in Dunster.
