Chef Director Ben Tish leaves Salt Yard Group

After eleven years with the Salt Yard Group, Ben Tish is leaving the company to pursue a new solo venture.  Tish joined the company in 2006 as Head Chef of Salt Yard, before going on to become Executive Chef and then Chef Director of the group, driving the food offer and helping to launch four further restaurants across London.

Tish, who spent his formative years working with Michelin starred chefs including Jason Atherton and Stephen Terry, will leave the company at the end of March.  Dan Sherlock, Head Chef of Salt Yard for the last three years, will be stepping up as Executive Chef, overseeing the restaurants.

Ben Tish said, “I’m incredibly proud of my time at Salt Yard Group, and the talented team of chefs we have built over the last decade.  The food scene has changed a lot in that time – I’m ready for a fresh challenge, and my next project will reflect that.”

Simon Mullins, co-founder of Salt Yard Group, said, “It has been a fantastic decade with Ben and we are all very excited about his new venture.  Ben’s departure is also a great opportunity for our extremely talented chefs to step into the spotlight and gain the credit they deserve.”
