Michael Caines MBE, owner of Michael Caines Collection and chef patron of Lympstone Manor, is known as one of Britain’s most celebrated and acclaimed Michelin-starred chefs.
Having grown up in the South West of England, Michael has earned a global reputation for his distinctive modern cuisine, which champions the finest local produce and suppliers, combined with influences from his global travels.
In 2006, Michael was awarded an MBE for contributions and services to the hospitality industry. He was also made a Freeman of the City of Exeter for his work impassioning the hospitality industry in the local area.
