Thomas Hine

We know that the reputation of a restaurant is built around the chef, which is why we are both delighted and very proud to have Thomas Hine as our Head Chef.

Following the departure of Will Holland who opened Coast in 2014, Thomas has taken on the role as Head Chef at our 2 AA Restaurant overlooking the beautiful Coppet Hall Beach.

Thomas has extensive experience working in numerous Michelin Starred kitchens and has gained enormous influence from some of the industry’s acclaimed chefs including Paul Ainsworth at Number 6, Sam Moody of Bath Priory and for the last six years under the leadership of Michael Caines where he was most recently Executive Head Chef at Lympstone Manor. Originally from Padstow and surrounded with a family of fishermen, his passion for seafood began right at the beginning of his career where he honed his craft working at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant on the Cornish coast.
