Dorset Masterchef Moving On
8:18am 4th April 2013
Dorset Masterchef winner Mat Follas is taking on a new challenge.
After four years of running the Wild Garlic in Beaminster - Mat has now signed a deal with Hall and Woodhouse Brewery.
Him and his team will take over running The Talbot in Iwerne Minster from late May.
Mat said 'We've loved being in our home town of Beaminster, but its time to grow the business and The Talbot in Iwerne Minster ticks all the boxes for what we are looking for. It has five great rooms that we can let and will have a seven day Bar & Grill offering great Pub and Bistro food, as well as a separate space for running our increasingly popular courses in the daytime and an evening restaurant. Our customers have asked for more rooms, a more casual, family menu and I'll still be able to provide higher end food in our evening restaurant for more intimate and quieter dining. The big challenge is to provide all of these with the same, or better, quality and standards we've achieved to date'.
