Richie Herkes

Richie trained for five years at the Montagu Arms hotel in The New Forest under a Michelin starred chef named John Mann. He then worked his way up through the ranks to become the youngest sous chef in the hotel's history, gaining NVQ levels 2&3 in kitchen & larder and NVQ Level 3 in kitchen management.

Richie moved to Llangoed Hall and became Head Chef, where he and his brigade gained 2 rosettes. It was at this time that he was introduced to Jan and Pierre Mifsud, who own our sister hotel The Lake Country House in Llangammarch Wells. They had recently purchased Northcote Manor and were keen to get Richie involved, where he has now been for the past five years as Head chef.

Richie has a team of four including  his sous chef Will Taurines, Patryk & Briony they have been at Northcote for over four years. The team are very dedicated to driving the restaurant forward.
