Arnaud Stevens

Executive Head Chef

Arnaud’s childhood in France sparked his passion for cooking, inspired by his mother and uncle who shared the Southern French culture for food and dining. He gained an appreciation for traditional, flavoursome food with a modern, creative twist that people take the time to enjoy - which he’s tried to replicate in his career.

Since moving to the UK in 1998 to develop his skills at the five-star Imperial Hotel in Torquay, Arnaud has worked in a plethora of Michelin kitchens, including CityRhodes under Gary Rhodes, La Tante Clare, under Pierre Koffman, Lindsay House under Richard Corrigan, and Jardin des Sens.

His experience, which spans over 20 years, also includes opening his own restaurant, Sixty-one in partnership with Searcy’s, which secured 3 AA rosettes in the first four months, and running a catering events space in Shoreditch in partnership with Montcalm hotels.

Before joining the Savoy Grill as Executive Head Chef, he had multiple Executive Head Chef positions for Searcy’s, including the top of the Gherkin, Blenheim Palace and the Royal Opera House.

He is extremely passionate about the industry, and has developed his knowledge of food, wine, and superlative guest experiences over his impressive career.


Santosh Uchil

General Manager

Santosh first joined the Savoy Grill in 2010 as Head Waiter before advancing to General Manager several years ago. After pursuing his studies in Mumbai, India, Santosh moved to London where his passion for hospitality truly flourished. His inspiration growing up was his father, who installed the importance of hard work and facing difficulties head on, and Santosh brings this passion for hard work and guest satisfaction every, single day. He describes hospitality as ‘a never ending learning process that completely enthrals you’.
