Executive Chef Niall Keating and his team at Whatley Manor have been awarded a coveted second Michelin star, just two years after earning the first star. The news was announced at an awards ceremony in London on 7 October 2019, and full coverage will appear in the 2020 edition of the Great Britain & Ireland Michelin Guide.

“This is the dream. My team are so special to me – and I am proud that together we have achieved this second star,” exclaimed Niall Keating. “They work so hard to support me and help create a great customer experience at Whatley Manor.”

The Dining Room at Whatley Manor features Niall’s modern menus which showcase many international influences. His background training took him from Sat Bains in Nottingham to Benu in San Francisco, then to Kong Hans Kaelder in Copenhagen – all prestigious Michelin- starred establishments.

Sue Williams, General Manager at Whatley Manor, followed Niall’s career progress over the years, and lured him to Whatley Manor in 2017. Her instincts and nurturing have seen Niall and the food culture at Whatley Manor evolve month-by-month into one of the country’s most compelling, popular and successful establishments.

“We respect the fact that Michelin always set the bar so high – it continuously gives us something as a team to strive for. What a momentous moment this is for Niall and everyone at Whatley Manor!,” enthused Sue Williams.
