Head Chef - Shane Hughes 

Shane's cv spans more than 25 years. He kicked off his culinary career in 1992 at Hartwell House in Buckinghamshire, and has since developed his skills at The Connaught, Whatley Manor, Ynyshir Hall in Powys, Wales, then to The Tudor Room at Great Fosters in Egham, Surrey, before joining restaurateur Richard Phillips as Head Chef at Thackerays' in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.


Built as a country retreat by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1912 for three wealthy brothers, The Salutation has evolved over the past century from a grand private residence to its current guise as a stylish 17-bedroom hotel, restaurant and garden.

The gardens are an eclectic mix of heirloom, rare and drought tolerant plants to create a longer season of interest. With sheltered nooks, a kitchen garden, meadow and jungle, The Bowling Lawn and a woodland walk, there is much exploring to do.

The restaurant, overseen by Head Chef Shane Hughes, offers a contemporary European style of cooking, incorporating Kent's bounty of indigenous seasonal ingredients. The restaurant is open seven evenings a week, offering a la carte and tasting menus. Or for the true gastronaut, there is a blind menu, served in the Tasting Room and comprises of whatever the Chef is particularly smitten with, from the fresh ingredients picked, collected, caught and delivered every day.
