Meet Viv Bronson, Head Chef

Viv Bronson, Head Chef at Compton Acres Poole Dorset

Viv is our tremendously talented head chef here at our Compton Acres Café and Tea Rooms. Since starting with us in 2011, Viv’s culinary reputation has transformed our menu into the delectable array of dishes which our busy and attractive Café and Tea Rooms have become known for.

Prior to taking the helm in our Compton kitchens, Viv worked within the hotel and catering trade for over 30 years. Viv’s vast wealth of experience includes running a variety of successful cafés as a Head Chef and Kitchen Manager, alongside owning and managing several restaurants, B&B’s and Catering Companies.

Throughout her illustrious career, Viv’s pure passion for creating good wholesome food which comes from the heart has remained a key part of her ethos in running her kitchens. We feel this is clear in the amazing home cooked dishes which are served daily that our visitors love so much!

Viv’s contribution is unquestionable; without her we would not have our famous Traditional Afternoon Tea or our equally popular Vegan Afternoon Tea! Furthermore, Viv has developed our sensational wine list and also ensures that the majority of our produce is locally sourced.

It is without doubt that Viv is an important part of Compton Acres!

The Café and Tea Rooms are also available for private hire, please contact Viv to discuss your specific catering requirements.
