Our Beach House family work alongside Hywel to deliver a truly memorable dining experience for all our guests.


Dan Andree
Head Chef

Dan always knew he wanted a career in the kitchen and his first job was at the Priory in Wareing, before he then began his apprenticeship at Springfield Hotel in Dorset.

He built up experience working in a range of establishments, from gastro pubs to hotel kitchens, learning how to manage all sections of the kitchen and develop menus. He joined Hywel in the Beach House kitchen in 2020 and has had a big influence on elevating the new tasting menus since joining the team.

Always up for a challenge, Dan’s entered and won various culinary competitions, and brought back two gold medals from the 2022 Welsh International Culinary Championship.

Outside of the restaurant, Dan likes to stay pretty active and can usually be found in the gym, playing golf, out fishing, and foraging.


Megan Rust
Restaurant Manager

Megan was always destined to work in the hospitality industry, and got her first taste as a teenager when she worked for a catering company alongside her mum. From here, her love of food grew, and she developed a real passion in trying new and unusual foods.

Her career has taken her across a wide range of different restaurants, gastro pubs and coffee shops, and prior to joining us, she was Head Waitress at the Lake Country House Hotel in Brecon. Megan joined the Beach House team as Chef de Rang in 2021, and since then her role has evolved as she’s taken on more responsibility, working her way up to Restaurant Manager in early 2024.

Outside work, Megan is a huge film buff and is often in the cinema catching the latest releases. When she’s not sat in a screen, her other passion is cooking at home with her husband Sam.
