The West Arms Hotel, in Llanarmon DC, near Llangollen, has been owned by Geoff and Gill Leigh-Ford since 1999. Both are well experienced operators, having worked at The Midland in Manchester many years ago, Le Grand Vefour in Paris, Gleneagles in Scotland, and The White House in Prestbury, Cheshire and various other quality establishments. We are fortunate to have two key members of staff operating The West Arms on a daily basis – Grant Williams our amazing Head Chef and Liane Dooley – our very passionate General Manager. The rest of our hardworking Team are incredibly committed to welcoming and looking after our guests.
We are fortunate to have Celebrity Chef Grant Williams at The West Arms (ITV Britain’s Best Chef Finalist Dec 2011) as a key member of the team. He is passionate about his role as Head Chef and places his love of cooking at The West Arms almost as high as his love for his family. All you have to do is taste one of his meals to feel the love put into them. His beautiful dishes are made utilising locally sourced food such as Lady Kenyon of Greddington’s Home Grown Fruit and Veg; Josh Williams’ Free Range Eggs; Dave Keegan of Llanrhaedr ym Mochant’s Welsh Lamb and Beef and Rosie Davies edible flowers.
