CHANGE is on the menu at one of the Clarence Valley's most popular dining establishments.

Award-winning venue Yamba Shores Tavern has welcomed Nick Cassidy as the new head chef. In the five weeks since joining the team, he has been cooking up a storm of success.

Owner of Yamba Shores Tavern Matthew Muir said Nick's acclaimed skills as a passionate foodie had made him introduce his own slant into the menu.

"Nick has brought a higher calibre of dining to our restaurant and bistro menus. He has introduced new dishes and brought his own personal style to our tavern," Mr Muir said.

"Together we have built a new menu comprising our most famous meals and customer feedback has been fantastic.

"At Yamba Shores Tavern our primary focus is our food and I'm excited to have Nick in the kitchen to take us forward."

Originally from Scotland, Mr Cassidy has lived in Yamba for six years. He previously owned and operated the Yamba Bar and Grill before selling the business and taking the job at the tavern.

Mr Cassidy said he was driven by fresh ingredients and praised his new work environment as a stunning and beautiful location.

"I'm working with a good team of people. So far it's been a very positive experience," he said.

"I'm quite passionate about food and as the head chef I'm responsible for ordering the produce and creating the menus. Matt has a lot of ideas for the future of the tavern and diners will love the changes we make."
