Chef Patron - Mark Ellis 

Mark has worked with and trained under some of the biggest names in the industry, notably his mentor Simon Radley of the AA five red star and Michelin starred Chester Grosvenor Hotel and Spa where he spent five years, eventually becoming Sous Chef. It was here his culinary education really began, learning both classical French and modern cookery under Simon’s tutelage, and absorbed his methods of refinement, imagination, and tongue in cheek humour that are often reflected in Marks dishes to this day. He then chose to further perfect his techniques first as Head Chef at Rowton Hall Hotel and then as a freelance chef running various hotel and restaurant kitchens and private catering for events for up to 2000 people and often for politicians, and celebrities. 

His sympathetic and intelligent use of great ingredients and constant search for perfection and his precise cookery techniques, has earned him 3 AA Rosettes at Peckforton Castle where he spent the last 9 years. 

Mark is considered an authority in modern cooking techniques, and an ambassador for quality produce and can often be seen at cookery demonstrations and food festivals in and around Cheshire passing on knowledge and skills with contagious enthusiasm and passion. 

After two successful recent appearances on the popular BBC program Great British Menu, first being mentored by Daniel Clifford, then a year later by Sat Bains, Mark is considered one of the industry’s rising stars.


Allium by Mark Ellis is located on the edge of Chester in the village of Tattenhall, and is within a beautifully restored 19th century town house, that later became the village shop named 'Beehive Stores'. This was the centre of activity in the village for many years, and some of that bustling spirit is captured in all that they do here. 

At Allium they are very aware of their eco-footprint, and with their own rainwater tank, hive of bees, vegetable, herb and fruit garden, and range of local growers and suppliers, consider themselves fully sustainable.Menus are created around produce grown in their own garden; the harmonies of nature and seasonality, bold flavours, interest and excitement and often, what grows together, go's together!
