After an exhaustive scrutiny of over 40 applications and at least a dozen interviews, we can finally announce that we have a new catering manager. Darren Gilmore joined us on 5 October after more than a decade managing public houses and hotels and prior to this, at least as long running the catering and retail operations of Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Darren is a graduate of Liverpool University and a keen fan of one of the Liverpool Premier League football clubs (we will leave you to discover which). He lives locally and enjoys walking his dogs, sport and visiting the Lake District. Together with Darren we are committed to making wholesale improvements to our catering operation and to get the new Four Seasons Restaurant open in time for Christmas. Further details will be announced in due course.
