Thierry de Magneval owns and runs Cellar Magneval Wine Bar & Caveau in Woking town centre, with his wife Jo, which they first opened in November 2013. Specialising in wines, cheese and aperitifs this multi award-winning French style wine bar has been hugely successful, growing a large and loyal following.
Originally from Lyon, France Thierry moved to the UK in 1999. He landed a job at Le Gavroche and his love of hospitality, wine and food began. Thierry worked off and on for Albert Roux for 8 years, as well as other well known chefs before taking the plunge to open his own establishment.
He loves to teach others the joys of wine, he loves to cook, he loves his three children and he loves to make people welcome in his bar.
