After reaching the semi-finals in the 2008 Masterchef UK, Kathryn Minchew from Gloucester has opened Gloucester Studio, an eight-seat restaurant in her own garden with a bespoke dining menu. Despite it having limited space and available for exclusive hire, the six-month trial in January 2015 was a success and she aims to continue into this year.

The garden shed restaurant features a single hexagonal table and diners can enjoy a three-course meal eaten off wooden plates. Minchew is now looking into mobile catering to be able to move her open fire unit to various events.
