Alyn Williams is a born and bred Londoner. His culinary journey started at home where his father both grew vegetables and cooked with passion. This passion was passed on to Alyn at a tender age and has never left him. Alyn opened his eponymous restaurant, ‘Alyn Williams at The Westbury’ in November 2011. Prior to that he worked with some of the biggest names in the business, including Gordon Ramsay and Marcus Wareing for whom he was head chef at his two Michelin star establishment. 2012 saw his light progressive style of cooking winning him the coveted ‘National Chef of the Year’ title, along with his first Michelin Star. He has since been awarded four AA rosettes.
Alyn’s other passions in life are his family, snowboarding and following his beloved West Ham United.
