The creation of talented chef patron Fernando Stovell.
Having scoured Surrey for the perfect site, Fernando found the unique setting of a 16th Century Tudor farmhouse in Chobham, and opened Stovell’s, where diners can enjoy contemporary European cuisine with Mexican accents, using sustainably sourced, local produce prepared by a team of talented chefs and experienced front of house. Since opening, the restaurant has been honoured with awards including the Waitrose Good Food Restaurant of the Year for the South East, four AA rosettes and top 100 restaurants in the Uk by various publications.
Avnish Kalra joined the Stovells team in late 2018 and enters Chef Fernando Stovell’s vision having been his friend for around the last six years, from an altogether different background than the Restaurant business. Avnish has always shared Fernando’s passion for fine food, travel (often relating to food!), wine, interesting ingredients and cooking styles, His past experience in commodities, finance and other fields, however, brings Stovells a more ridged financial approach and hopes to bring capital strength to the restaurant and a strong equity position. Thus allowing Stovells to keep up with market and consumer trends. He is a Masters graduate from Sir John Cass Business School (City University London) and has substantial experience in trading, equity markets, and supply chains. Along with the shared interests and passion for food that Fernando & Avnish both share, we strongly believe this new collaboration will result in a great partnership and a new breath of life into Stovells.
