Tom Kerridge has recently been showing us around Britain’s pubs. It has led viewers to question his personal life – so who is his wife Beth?
It comes as the pub industry has faced decline over the last 20 years. As a pub owner himself, Tom has been setting out to save them from closing.
One pub that was saved is The Black Bull in Stirlingshire, which has been serving villagers in Gartmore for more than 200 years.
So putting his professional life aside, viewers are keen to find out more about his love life – which involves his wife. So who is Beth?
Who is Tom Kerridge’s wife Beth?
- Beth Cullen-Kerridge
Beth is a sculptor from Stoke-on-Trent. She went to John Moores University and the Royal College of Art before sculpting her way to her career.
Beth, 50, and Tom, 46, work alongside each other as head chef and restaurant manager at The Hand and Flowers, which opened in 2005.
The couple got their first Michelin star a year after opening the restaurant.
Beth and Tom now have a four-year-old son called Acey.

Tom and Beth Kerridge: Relationship timeline
Beth and Tom have been together for 20 years, having got married in 2000.
They first met at a mutual friend’s birthday party in 1997 – she reportedly asked him to chip in £3 for a stripper!
At the time, Tom was working as a sous chef for Gary Rhodes in London, while Beth was working as sculptor Sir Anthony Caro’s assistant.
Beth left Tom three times during their first year of working together, when they were living in one room above their place of work.
Since then, they have become pub owners hand-in-hand – and opened a second gastro pub called The Coach in 2014.

While she consistently posts support for her husband’s work, Beth seems just as eager about her own projects.
Her bio states: ‘Sculptor working on the next exhibition!! Happy days’.
