Chef Adebola Adeshina - The Chubby Castor of the Fitzwilliam Arms

We are thrilled to be awarded a Michelin plate three years in a row by Michelin and also named by Hardens and Square meal.

Chef Patron, Adebola Adeshina opened The Chubby Castor in Peterborough focusing on modern British cooking, using the finest local and seasonal produce available.

Ade previously worked for a number of highly established restaurants achieving AA Rosettes for culinary excellence, a Michelin recommendation and a listing in the Good Food Guide.

Early in his career, Ade started working with the Aubergine team under Gordon Ramsay. He remained with Ramsay for six years, cooking at the three Michelin-starred Gordon Ramsay Restaurants and at Petrus under Marcus Wareing. Ade has also worked under Philip Howard and Eric Chavot.

Presented as civilised dining, The Chubby Castor at The Fitzwilliam Arms is situated in the beautiful rural village of Castor which is 4 miles west of Peterborough City Centre. The A47 is just north of the village with the A1 to the west.

Since opening in 2017, The Chubby Castor has since been recommended in the Michelin Guide.
