John Coleman has been in the catering industry for 15 years. Started from the very bottom washing pots at Woods Tea Rooms which was his introduction into the industry. Following that, John studied catering and hospitality at Doncaster College where he went on to be a chef for 6 to build up his skill base and then to further his knowledge of the industry trained to be a qualified butcher and worked in the industry for 4 years.

From this John went on to create Thyme at Bawtry which turned out to be a huge success and gained a reputation which is still in the family. John soon realised there was an opportunity for a steak house in Doncaster so opened Coleman’s which is the only steak house in Doncaster providing the most variety of steaks.
