Introducing: Thomas Carr @ The Olive Room, Ilfracombe

Thomas Carr

Thomas Carr at the launch of the Exmoor Food Fest, 28 January 2015 at The Combe, Minehead

Thomas Carr’s journey started when he was employed as head chef in 2002 at the Beachcomber Café in Woolacombe, Devon – his home town. From here Thomas moved to the Watersmeet Hotel, again in Woolacombe where he was Chef De Partie for 5 years between 2004 and 2009.

In March 2009 Thomas went to work under renowned chef Nathan Outlaw at his Seafood and Grill Restaurant @ The St Enodoc Hotel in Cornwall. Originally taken on by Nathan Outlaw as a Sous chef, Thomas’ potential was quickly noticed and in February 2010 he was appointed as Head Chef at the brand new ‘Restaurant Nathan Outlaw’. Under Thomas the restaurant received two Michelin stars within a year of opening, along with numerous other accolades and awards within the hospitality industry. As well as the day to day running of the restaurant, Thomas also participated in outside events linked to the restaurant and Nathan Outlaw; including a ‘pop up’ restaurant in London and several food festivals/events.

In 2013 Thomas returned to North Devon to take up a role as Executive chef at The Coach House, Kentisbury Grange – allowing him another opportunity to work with a renowned chef in Michael Caines MBE. Thomas built a full team from scratch and achieved 2 AA Rosettes within 6 months of opening as well as a full entry into the 2014 Trenchermen’s Guide.

In the spring of 2014 Thomas was presented with an opportunity to fulfil a lifetime dream of owning his own restaurant in the Harbour town of Ilfracombe, North Devon.
