Burley Manor in the New Forest has appointed a new general manager armed with a wealth of experience from some top restaurant establishments around the country.
The four-star restaurant with rooms, part of the New Forest Hotels portfolio, has welcomed Adam Wilson to the role, who joins from The Ivy Clifton Brasserie in Bristol, where he has been General Manager since June 2016.
Since beginning his career in 2000 with the Hotel L’Hermitage in Jersey, Adam has taken up pivotal positions in both the hotel and restaurant sectors including roles at the Michelin-starred restaurant at Danesfield House Hotel in Marlow, the OXO Tower in London, Michelin star Auberge du Lac at Brockett Hall in Hertfordshire and HIX Mayfair at the famous five-star Brown’s Hotel in London.
The move to Burley Manor, a restaurant and rooms, represents an important shift in his journey to the general manager.
His experience in the restaurant industry will be a great addition to Burley Manor’s team, where he will bring his expertise to boost the restaurant’s reputation, showcasing the restaurant’s Mediterranean inspired food offering.
Wilson’s extensive experience in the wine industry – including wine manager at Brown’s Hotel in Mayfair, head sommelier at Auberge du Lac in Hertfordshire and head sommelier at the Oxo Tower in London – will aid in promoting Burley Manor’s wine ethos and menu.
Wilson said: “I am excited to be joining such a forward-thinking restaurant and rooms as general manager, to continue building both the team, the ethos and Burley Manor’s reputation as a destination restaurant. Set to be a pivotal year for us all here, I’m really looking forward to leading such a passionate team and together making all areas of the guests experience even better whilst showcasing the best of the Mediterranean. We’ll be sharing more exciting news and plans soon – watch this space!”
