Introducing: our new Head Chef

Graham Waddell is an experienced highly trained, versatile international chef who originally hails from Scotland. Having spent much of his formative industry years working in a variety of high-end restaurants in both Scotland and England, Graham now calls Australia home.

Prior to making the move to The Alliance Hotel, Mr Waddell was Head Chef at one of the best French restaurants in Australia - Baguette Bistrot + Bar, where he commenced his seven year tenure at the bistro as a Sous Chef under the helm of Michelin-starred chef Bruno Loubet. On a recent interval from Brisbane Mr Waddell ran the kitchen of the stylishly hip Newmarket Hotel in Melbourne’s St Kilda which whet his appetite for the gastronomic pub scene.  

“I was looking for a new challenge in Brisbane that would allow me to experiment with different styles of cuisine and The Alliance Hotel offers a fast paced exciting environment where I can take the menu to new heights. At the moment we’re incorporating fresh local produce with exciting innovative concepts to create daily specials unlike anything that has ever been done in a Brisbane pub before.” Mr Waddell said.
