Chefs At L'Olivier

The simplicity of great ingredients cooked with care, attention and good craft is what excites me about food. 

That coupled with great hospitality is the key for a perfect restaurant.

Our Team

In Clive’s Words

My cooking career began at the tender age of 5, taking recipes from my first ever cook book and knocking on the neighbours doors to show off my dishes. I was very clear back then that the hospitality industry was the route my career would take.

I became a head chef at a very young age as I felt I wanted to explore dishes at my own free will. I was awarded a Michelin star at The Lords Of The Manor Hotel in The Cotswolds at the age of 25 and again at a hotel outside of Bath. Since then I have run larger operations, all gaining recognition in the Michelin Guide.

As well as a love of food, I have a passion for teaching and after listening to many cries for help, I started a consultancy business. This experience has opened me up to many different cultures and fun adventures.
