Dale McIntosh

Born in Kent, but now living in Mid-Cornwall - not far from the port of Falmouth - Dale has worked at various restaurants and hotels in both his home county and Cornwall respectively.

Dale became the new head chef at The Riverbank, Truro after a successful year at Bustophers Bar Bistro, a year that saw Dale (and Bustophers) go from strength to strength. Not only had Dale and his team secured a third successive year at the Cornish Challenge final, but also retained Bustopher’s AA rossette with impressive comments, received a highly commended verdict in the Michelin Guide and came joint second in The Food Magazine’s “South West - Best Local Chef Of The Year”, as voted for by thousands of readers.

Prior to joining Bustophers, Dale had an outstanding 2 years at The Pandora Inn, where he and his team won the Cornish Challenge and helped steer the pub to win Cornwall Tourism’s “Pub of the Year 2010”.

Dale is currently head chef at The Norway Inn, Perranarworthal and enjoying the challenge. The Sunday carvery is proving to be very popular. He is known for using fresh locally-sourced ingredients and regularly visits his suppliers to see where his produce comes from.
