Scott started his career in Cumbria as Chef De Partie and now oversees the kitchens at both Stove and Wainwrights' Inn on the Langdale Estate.
“I worked in Northumberland for two and a half years after finishing my college course,” said Scott, who grew up just outside Birmingham. “While I was there, I met my wife Sarah, who also works at Langdale, and she was relocated to Manchester.
“We moved to the north-west and about two years later, the head chef I worked with in Northumberland was working at Langdale. I came up to Cumbria for a weekend visit, really liked what they were doing at Langdale, loved the area and decided that Cumbria was where I wanted to be.
“I’ve now worked at Langdale for seven years in July. I initially dropped down to Chef De Partie to expand my knowledge. I didn’t have experience of two rosettes as I’d only done one rosette in big hotels, so the opportunity to come here was great.
“Over the years, opportunities have come up to progress within the company and I’ve now been promoted to oversee both kitchens.
“My role now involves trying to spot issues before they happen, improving the team I work with and making sure the customer gets what they want, when they want it.
“Langdale is a great location. The company takes a great interest in you as a person, so it feels more than just a job. You can really feel at home here.”
