Steve Barringer

Head chef Steve Barringer is Bedfordshire born and bred. Having worked his way through the kitchen hierarchy at Flitwick Manor, a stone’s throw from his childhood home in Westoning, he shot to prominence in 2011 by finishing runner-up on the BBC’s Masterchef: The Professionals.


After spells in kitchens in Devon, he returned to Bedfordshire in 2015, successfully earning The Anchor – Tilsworth a place in the coveted Michelin guide in 2017.


Despite the fine accomplishment of elevating a village pub to Michelin standards, what Steve really yearned for was a place to call home. Therefore, in October 2018 Steve and his wife Amy were delighted to open Eileen’s in Ampthill – named after his grandmother who first inspired a teenage Steve to get into the kitchen.
