Chef Lee Scott has worked in many top restaurants including the Michelin-starred Michaels Nook in the Lake District and the two-starred Sea Grill in Brussels, and has been Executive Sous Chef at Radisson SAS in Manchester. More recently he cooked for the Hebridean Spirit, the world’s smallest and most exclusive cruise ship, known as ‘The Claridges of the Sea’.

Tom Hewer Catering provides catering at some of the most prestigious sporting and music events in the country. Last year the company was awarded the contract to cater for all the large functions at Royal & Derngate, and opened John Franklins bar at the venue. With other food and drink businesses in Northampton, including the restaurant Bread & Pullet, the company is an ideal partner for this new venture at Royal & Derngate.
