A little about Sam

I am a chef by trade, completing training at the famous Langan’s Brasserie, London and achieving a Specialised Chef Diploma from the Academy of Culinary Arts.  I went on to work in various Chef roles over the following decade and most recently ran the Drax Arms, Bere Regis.  In our time at the Drax, we have enjoyed developing a great reputation for quality food and drink, in a friendly and welcoming community atmosphere.  I am now looking forward to the new challenges ahead of us as the Ship Inn!
