The People Behind Tierra & Mar



Head Chef

After working in various Michelin starred kitchens in England, Australia and Spain, Brett decided to take the experience gained from his travels and open his own restaurant with his wife Silvia. Where better to start this dream than in Cirencester – the capital of the Cotswolds, renowned for having fresh produce so close by. The ideal location turned out to only be a ten minute drive from his parent’s smallholding in a rural village on the outskirts of the town. It’s the dream of most chefs’ to have fresh produce on their doorstep and this is something that can most definitely be achieved in this location, where herbs and vegetables are grown on the family smallholding along with various animals living the good life. 


Front of House - Restaurant Manager

Silvia is from the Mediterranean town of Benidorm and has also worked at multiple Michelin starred restaurants across England, Australia and Spain as front of house staff. Brett and Silvia met in England before travelling Australia together and living in Spain before venturing back to the Cotswolds in order to put their knowledge together to open the restaurant. After deciding on opening their restaurant in England, the couple agreed the Cotswolds would be the perfect place to open a Mediterranean style restaurant. Tierra & Mar aims to bring something unique and exciting to the area and uses the best possible products from both Spain and England
