A Warm Welcome from our Executive Chef

He's new to L'Horizon Hotel, but Executive Head Chef Andrew Soddy has a great background of experience from working in London at The Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane working his way up to Sous Chef & while at The Dorechester he had the privilege to cook for the Queen & family at a state function. He was also Chef to the Sultan of Brunei while he stayed in London. Over the last few of years Chef Andrew has worked at Sea with P&O Cruises working for Marco Pierre White and then more recently with 6 star rated Seabourn Cruises as Executive Chef.

"In the Channel Islands - and here right on the bay, it's all about food metres rather than food miles. Being able to cook with locally-caught and produced food of exceptional quality, that's what makes my job special.

I look forward to settling into Jersey where my food will match the captivating view of St Brelades bay.

See you dining soon."

- Andrew Soddy  - Executive Chef
