David Barkley ('Sarge') - Executive Chef

Murrieta's Canmore

 Executive Chef David Barkley, better known to us here at Murrieta’s and many Canmore natives as “Sarge” has been in the hospitality industry for the better part of 30 years. After working in a couple of restaurants as a teenager David decided to pursue a career in the culinary field and register for a cooking apprenticeship at Nova Scotia Community Collage, after graduating in 1995 he worked for a couple of renowned restaurants in Halifax before moving to Kananaskis Alberta in 1998. Wail working for Canadian Pacific Hotels he shifted his carrier and worked as a restaurant manager at the Lodge at Kananaskis, then being offered an opportunity to open the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel as an Outlets Manager he moved to Vancouver. After a couple of years he transferred to Ottawa to work at the historic Chateau Laurie as the assistant banquet manager.

After answering the call to return to the mountains; now known as Sarge and feeling the urge to once again work with food. Chef Sarge had worked for some of the busiest and most well known restaurants in Canmore for the past 14 years. It was by a stroke of luck and good timing that Murrietas Canmore has retained Chef Sarge to oversee our kitchen. Bringing with him his experience in hotels, fine dining restaurants and high volume pubs. His passion for quality and constancy can be experienced with every dish, and pays respect to the rustic west coast style food we are best known for. We look forward to the exciting culinary experience that Chef Sarge provides our guest from day to day and can’t wait to taste the ongoing changes to the menu for years to come.
