Josh Eggleton


The Pony and Trap

+

Josh Eggleton grew up in South Bristol near the picturesque Chew Valley, and the chef has always been family orientated. Now running a hugely popular Michelin-starred pub with his sister Holly, Josh Eggleton also cites his grandparents and father as integral to his early fascination with food. His grandparents encouraged him to bake, mastering British favourites such as Victoria sponge and upside-down cake from an early age and giving him confidence in the kitchen: “I actually opted out of cookery classes at year 10 when I was at school, as I thought I already had cakes well and truly under my belt!”
