Dining : Head Chefs Profile


Andy and Leighton

Andreas and Leighton


Our Head Chefs Leighton Thomas and Andreas Leisinger are both talented chefs who have been at The Imperial for over 7 years.

Leighton and Andreas’ love of food came from their fathers who were both chefs.  So not only did they both have first-hand experience of the industry but their passion for creating memorable dining experiences was instilled in them from an early age.

Leighton, who comes from Cardiff and Andreas who was born and raised in Germany, have worked in a number of prestigious restaurants and hotels in Europe and the UK, with many gaining coveted awards under their stewardship. 

Their travelling has led to an exploration of flavours, culture and skills and their combined experience, eye for detail and passion for using the very best local and seasonal produce means they complement each other and provide a winning combination for guests who dine in Chantrey’s Restaurant or at a private function.

They were both influential in Chantrey’s Restaurant gaining Two AA Rosettes in 2017 and for the cuisine being rated as impressive in concept, accuracy and skill.  So it is no wonder that Chantrey’s is now regarded as one of the finest restaurants in North Wales.
