Rhubarb, a well respected West Didsbury Restaurant, has appointed Michelin trained Bryn Evans as head chef. Bryn will be bringing his own unique style of Modern British cuisine with a re-launch of the menu this week.

Mark Ramsden, chef- proprietor says “Bryn is an absolute talent whose career has included some of the UK’s finest restaurants and it’s a pleasure to work alongside someone of his calibre. He brings fresh ideas to the table that will take Rhubarb forward and cement its position as a premier Manchester dining venue’.

Bryn’s career has included the Michelin starred Devonshire arms hotel and the Chester Grosvenor hotel. Nearer to Manchester Bryn has worked at Harvey Nichols under Robert Craggs and with Michael Riemenschneider at Juniper in Altrincham, but is best known for his creative menu’s as head chef of Manchester’s Obsidian restaurant .

Lisa Ramsden, co-owner said “This is an exciting time in Rhubarb’s development. We have been going strong for nearly eight years now, but I think it is important to re-invent yourself and now we hope to bring what you would normally associate with large city centre restaurants to Didsbury”

Rhubarb was established in 2002 by husband and wife team Mark and Lisa Ramsden and scooped the coveted newcomer of the year award at The Manchester Food and drink festival six weeks after opening.
