We caught up with chef Andrew Bradley to find out about the culinary delights that guests can look forward to at Spicer Manor.

Can you tell us a bit about your background?

I trained at Bradford Catering College and went on to work at the Box Tree restaurant in Ilkley for five years where I become restaurant manager.

In November 1993 I opened Bradley’s restaurant in Huddersfield which I ran for 22 years. We were in the Good Food Guide every one of those years which was a fantastic achievement for everyone involved.

During that time, I also opened a second restaurant in Bradford, while also fulfilling a wedding catering contract with the National Trust at East Riddlesden Hall.

What’s your favourite thing to cook?

I love cooking fresh fish or eating it! Especially if I’m at the coast and it comes straight off a boat.

I can cater for all occasions at Spicer Manor whether it’s a birthday party, family gathering, corporate event or wedding.

What will be on the menu?

All menus can be tailored to each individual guest, from a simple BBQ in the summer to a gourmet meal with champagne and lobster. I also cater for all dietary requirements in the process. 

What’s your favourite thing about Spicer Manor?

My favourite thing about Spicer Manor is firstly the space in the kitchen and the room to move around, but also the views on a clear day. You can’t beat looking out over God’s own county!

What’s the one kitchen gadget you couldn’t live without?

The one thing I couldn’t live without in a kitchen are my knives and steel to keep them very sharp. Also, salt and pepper to bring the flavours to the foods we serve.
