A restaurant manager who previously worked at Michelin-starred establishments has joined Thornton Hall Hotel and Spa.
Marc-Antoine de Re has been recruited as restaurant manager of The Lawns as part of the venue’s plan to bolster its fine dining offer. It follows the recent appointment of executive chef Matt Worswick.
De Re has worked at a number of restaurants in the UK and France including the three AA Rosette La Becasse, Michelin-starred Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa in Wiltshire, Michelin-starred Lords of the Manor Hotel in Gloucestershire and Restaurant La Laiterie in Lambersart, France.
Geoff Dale, general manager of Thornton Hall Hotel and Spa said: "One of our key objectives for this year was to put the right people in place to keep building on The Lawns’ reputation for fine dining and support us in the pursuit of more accolades.
“Marc-Antoine’s arrival is part of that and we’re thrilled he’s agreed to join us.
"Marc-Antoine is working closely with our new executive chef Matt to ensure that our customer service and dining experience reflect the very high quality food coming out of the kitchen too."
De Re adds: "It’s refreshing to join a business that is so focused on growth and improvement and I’m keen to use my experience in fine dining to really support that.”
“Thornton Hall has a superb reputation and I’m delighted that I’ve joined such a passionate and experienced team."
