See the video below to get a flavour for how the kitchen works at The Hundred House Hotel. You’ll also see how Stuart collects local ingredients for his recipes.

Stuart aims to pass on experience, knowledge and interesting ideas to anybody of any ability. As long as you can tie an apron, you’re in ! 


A love of food and drink is a passion to be shared as Bruce McMichael and eight fellow cooks found out under the watchful eyes of Hundred House Hotel’s Stuart Phillips

YOU can spend a lifetime learning about new combinations of flavours, testing out new gadgets or having a companionable time around the stove, or you can spend a day in a professional kitchen. We British watch hours of TV celebrity chefs yelling, and swearing and generally making out that life in a busy restaurant is not fun. Commercial kitchens are hot, dangerous and stressful places – but they also hum with drama and passion.

Along with a big dollop of new skills to rake home, this was what our brigade of domestic cooks were looking for as we sipped our morning coffee in Shropshire’s award-winning Hundred House Hotel . . . .
