Meet the Chef behind one of the top Restaurants in Bath

Meet our Head Chef, Michael Ball. Having worked in impressive kitchens all over the UK, Michael brings his wealth of experience to one of the finest restaurants in Bath.

With an undying passion for the culinary craft and prestigious stints at Careys Manor Hotel & Sen Spa, Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel, Thornbury Castle Hotel and DoubleTree by Hilton Cadbury House, Michael’s hard work and determination has culminated in a desire to create his own legacy and to deliver a truly unique vision for Homewood Park.

A believer in using seasonal, local produce and using only the best quality ingredients, Michael is committed to expanding his knowledge even further if that is even possible: “When there are so many new techniques to discover you have to want to continuously learn or you will become stagnant.”

When creating a menu, Michael is influenced by the opportunity to grow many of his own ingredients as he has always had a strong desire to know where food comes from. Diners can expect lighter and more contemporary dishes from his offering.

With an impressive eye for detail and a desire to always be consistent, Michael’s love for his role is apparent to all who meet him or see him work.

If you want to sample Michael’s incredible flavour combinations, then be sure to take a look at our menus below, including our exceptional Lunch in Bath.
