This is a tremendous achievement as The Tudor Pass only opened in September 2022, it's highly unusual for the Michelin Guide to award a star so soon after opening, but it reflects head chef Alex Payne and his team's talent, dedication and passion.

Born in Egham and raised less than a mile from the hotel, Alex joined Great Fosters last September to launch The Tudor Pass, an intimate, gastronomic restaurant with only seven tables and open Wednesday to Saturday for both lunch and dinner.

Alex and his team explain and serve many of the dishes directly to diners to bring some of the excitement and theatre of the pass into the restaurant giving a truly unique experience for guests.

Alex adds, "I'm thrilled for the whole team that Michelin has recognised our small restaurant and look forward to welcoming clients both old and new to The Tudor Pass in the coming months. It's such an honour to be recognised in this way and this award will definitely spur us on to achieve even greater things."
