Our team are very much a part of the experience we offer – you can find out a bit more about some of the stars of the show here.
Marc Payne – Executive Head Chef
Marc has recently joined the senior team at the hotel and brings with him a wealth of experience. Marc states that the turning point of his career was securing a position working for Gary Rhodes at the Rhodes & Co, Manchester and from there his career bloomed, working his way through the ranks in different positions until he took the reins at the ‘Ranalph Restaurant’ at Crewe Hall. It is no wonder that Gary Rhodes is one of the biggest influences in Marc’s career along with Marco Pierre White & Keith Floyd. Quality and consistency is the key to Marc’s 22 years in the kitchen, and that coupled with his passion for good quality fresh food we are delighted to have him on board
Matthew Phillips – Food & Drink Manager
Matthew has joined the team having spent the previous 4/5 years working in central London where he gained the majority of his experience at the renowned Marriot Hotel, Grosvenor-square and most recently heading up the food & drink operation at the boutique Covent Garden Hotel. His role with us is to head up the food & drink operation at the hotel and neighbouring lodge on the park. Matthew has a passion for fine wine, tasty food and service with a smile.
