Michelin Chef to open new Stockton-on-Tees restaurant.

7th August 2012

Marcus Bennett has been running the Bay Horse at Hurworth in County Durham since October 2008, he won the Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2010 and 2011 and is the current Gastropub Chef of the Year.

Now the sucessful chef is heading to North Yorkshire to take over the former Chadwicks building on Yarm High Street.

"We have been looking around for our next move for a couple of years, we put all our ideas together and thought - this is going to work. I think it is the best site in Yarm."

Hopeing to open in September and offering a continental-cafe feel for diners the new venue will be called Muse.

Marcus will stay mainly at the Bay Horse but will spend at least a day a week in Yarm, working with his team to hone the food and wine list.

For now the venue is undergoing a complete refurbishment. Marcus explains "The decor and feel of the place is absolutely key - I've got boxes of bits and pieces at Hurworth that I will be bringing here - but the food has to be right for people to come back."
