Park Regis Birmingham appoints Executive Chef

Park Regis Birmingham has appointed experienced chef Tom Biddle as Executive Chef, with responsibility for all of the hotel’s food and beverage offerings.

Opening late March, the 253-bedroom four-star hotel will boast two main outlets, its fourth floor 1565 Restaurant - the year that Five Ways dates back to - and its 16th floor Pan-Asian rooftop restaurant and bar. The hotel’s executive lounge will also offer food and drink to guests while its 15th floor conference and meeting spaces will have banqueting options for up to 160 delegates.

Biddle, who trained at UCB, joins Park Regis after a string of high-profile catering roles including executive and head chef positions across the UK, most recently at Tudor Park Marriott in Kent, where he became the group’s youngest ever head chef at the age of 25.

This is the first Park Regis hotel in the Northern Hemisphere and I’m looking forward to starting with a new team, new kitchens and new equipment. The 1565 restaurant has a modern, contemporary theme and will feature signature dishes, grills and classics, as well as traditional dishes from the Midlands area. It has a seasonal menu and we are working with local suppliers to source fresh produce and ingredients. The 16th floor Pan-Asian restaurant will have incredible views across the city and will become a destination for diners. We’ll be revealing much more about that soon.
The upper four-star quality that we’re offering will really help us make a difference against our competitors in the area, while starting with a fresh team before the hotel opens means we can bond and work together to start as we mean to go on.
