A Scottish hotel on the outskirts of Grangemouth and Falkirk has announced that it has reshaped its senior team having secured two key appointments.
The award-winning Grange Manor has named Andrew Tighe as its new general manager and Dean Hay as its new head chef.
Originally from Whitley Bay, Tighe’s career began at the Park Hotel in Tynemouth, followed by two decades of hospitality experience in Newcastle and the Lake District.
While award-winning chef Hay started working at The Grange Manor at the age of 15, he has also spent time working in Edinburgh, The Borders, Shetland and France.
Tighe said: “These are exciting times for The Grange Manor as we seek to further our reputation as a leading wedding venue, and enhance our food offering in general.
“Having the right people in place to deliver our ambitious plans is crucial in ensuring we deliver to the very highest standards for all our guests. Everyone on the team is very much looking forward to playing a part in the next chapter of this renowned local hotel.”
The Grange Manor, which was built in the late 19th century for the factor of the Earl of Zetland’s local estate, retains many of the original features from when it was first built.
In 2016, the venue was crowned winner of the Wedding Venue of the Year category of the Official Scottish Wedding Awards for the second consecutive year.
