Hywel Jones is Executive Chef for The Park Michelin-starred restaurant and The Brasserie. Since his appointment in 2004, Hywel has successfully raised the standards of the cuisine to a level that has resulted in numerous accolades including a Michelin Star.

Hywel started his career with David Nichols at The Royal Garden and then moved on to work as Chef de Partie in two Michelin 3-star establishments; Chez Nico at 90 and Marco Pierre White. He then furthered his skills as junior Sous Chef at Michelin starred Le Souffle.
