New Chef Joins the team at The Glutton Club

As TripAdvisor reviews rank The Glutton Club as one of the top restaurants in Shrewsbury, Chef Proprietor George Cavendish welcomes a new local chef to his team, to meet ever increasing demand for his quality, imaginative dishes and new special Thursday Steak Nights.

Chef Luke Otterburn, together with David Yates from Shrewsbury, join George under his guidance to prepare everything for their menus in-house, from meats and sauces, to fresh bread and homemade pre-dinner liqueurs.

George Cavendish said, “Both Luke and David are great additions to the team as we prepare our new Summer dishes and start to make our own flavoured liqueurs, lemonades and even our own homemade Pimms. David has a phenomenal knowledge about drinks and makes amazing cocktails, his flavour combinations are second to none.

Our Thursday night steak deal, where diners can choose any two of our 35 day aged steaks and get a bottle of wine for £40.00, is also proving really popular. It’s brilliant to have David and Luke on board to swell the team, who are both as passionate as I am about quality, seasonal produce.”

The Glutton Club started as a ‘pop-up’ venture, intending to open for one month only in November 2012, but due to overwhelming popularity George decided to stay put – and he has never looked back. The Glutton Club is now firmly regarded as one of Shrewsbury’s, and indeed Shropshire’s, established restaurants.

A recent TripAdvisor reviewer had the following to say: “As good as it gets; seriously. My wife and I have just eaten at The Glutton Club having moved to Shrewsbury from London a couple of weeks ago. Quite simply the food here is fabulous; it's as good as anywhere we've eaten in London. And I mean anywhere! One of the best things I can say about this restaurant is, why do 10 average main courses when you can do 4/5 superb ones. So many restaurants cram their menus with promise they don't deliver on. The Glutton Club has a limited menu of quality seasonal dishes which, in my opinion, is the way restaurants should always be.”

The Glutton Club restaurant, situated next to Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury, is open Tuesday – Saturday 5pm-12pm and Sunday’s for group bookings by prior arrangement.
