Not only has the General Manager, Sue Williams been named as hotelier of the year recently by The Caterer, but they’ve also got some really exciting news about their restaurant and green room.
Sue Williams has previously headed up some the UK’s most iconic hotels and has nurtured some of the UK’s most promising hoteliers and chefs. She’s now been presented with an award at a celebratory lunch at Northcote, Lancashire.
Sue Williams has previously worked for: Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, the Bath Priory, Gidleigh Park, Clivedon House & Whatley Manor. Her CV basically reads like a ‘where to stay’ in the UK, I’d challenge anyone to have a more impressive hotel career history.
Whatley Manor have announced that their Grey’s Brasserie has undertaken an extensive refurbishment and has recently re-opened to the public.
The hotel will also launch The Green Room, an exciting new multi-functional space that will be overseen by the talented chef, Laetizia Madsen. The Green Room was previously a low-key private function space, but is now being transformed into a vibrant new hub for food and drink enjoyment. Laetizia Madsen’s chef pedigree is impressive, too – she joins Whatley Manor from Benu in San Francisco – and her new role overseeing The Green Room will be an opportunity to personalise the space with her international cooking flair.
The newly kitted-out kitchen/bar will feature Gaggenau’s latest kitchen appliances and gadgets, and will be a showcase environment for a full programme of lunches, dinners, cookery demonstrations, cheese and wine tastings, cocktail tutorials, and small music events, while also being available for exclusive private and corporate hire.
