Royal Oak chef in new series of Great British Menu

The head chef at the Royal Oak will battle out with 23 others for the right to serve a special banquet for war heroes.

Dominic Chapman has been chosen by the BBC to compete in the ninth season of Great British Menu, a competition which sees top chefs design a menu to be served at a show-piece banquet.

This year's competition will commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day, when allied servicemen landed in mainland Europe, with a special banquet for veterans on Friday, June 6 in St Pauls Cathedral

Dominic, who has been head chef at the Royal Oak in Paley Street for eight years, must create a menu of dishes which evoke the spirit of wartime Britain.

He will initially compete in the South-west competition against Josh Eggleton, from the Pony and Trap in Bristol and Emily Watkins from the Kingham Plough in Oxfordshire.

The series will air from Monday, April 7. The date of Dominic's episode has not been confirmed yet.

The judges include D-Day veterans and Winston Churchill's granddaughter Celia Sandys.
