Meet the Chef: James Mason

James Mason, Head Chef

The Coach House by Michael Caines
Kentisbury, Barnstaple

In 2015 James was the winner of The Young Professional South West Chef Award and we are delighted to have James Mason, aged 26 years, at The Coach House by Michael Caines as our Head Chef.

James started his career 9 years ago at Exeter College as an apprentice before he started work at Michael Caines, The Abode, Exeter. Following this, James also worked at Royal Hospital Road under Gordon Ramsey giving him more work experience, before going to France. On his return, James worked at Michelin Star Restaurant Tristan before his move to a Senior Sous Chef for the Salutation Inn at Topsham, Exeter.

James’s passion lies with training young and upcoming chefs at the start of their apprenticeships as well as his most recent achievement of three AA Rosettes.

The menus created for The Coach House by Michael Caines have been carefully designed to reflect the seasonality of fresh, local produce and if visiting North Devon it must surely be on your list of places to visit.
