Davide Occhiuzzi

Whittlebury Park in Northamptonshire has announced Davide Occhiuzzi as the new restaurant manager for its 3 AA Rosette Murrays restaurant.

In his new role, Occhiuzzi will be responsible for the operation of the fine dining restaurant Murrays, which was recently awarded its third AA Rosette.

Occhiuzzi began his career in his native Italy, gaining experience in a variety of chef de rang roles. He then relocated to Paris, Dubai and later London, where he worked in a number of high-profile establishments, including as floor manager at the then newly opened Demoiselle Galvin in Dubai and one-Michelin star Galvin la Chapelle in London where he was head waiter.

He said: “With its third AA Rosette and creative and talented team, this is an exciting period for Murrays. I’m looking forward to using my experience to build on the restaurant’s well-established reputation to take dining here to the next level, and I am thrilled to be embarking on the next stage of my career here.”

The intimate restaurant is led by head chef Harvey Lockwood, who specialises in using local and in-season produce from the surrounding Northamptonshire farms and suppliers for his modern British menu.

David Munson, general manager of Whittlebury Park, said: “We have a varied range of exceptional dining options at Whittlebury Park, of which Murrays is the jewel in the crown. We’re delighted to welcome Davide to the team, and we know that with his wealth of experience and passion for the industry, it will continue to go from strength to strength.”

Alongside Murrays, Whittlebury Park boasts four additional food and beverage outlets: Aston’s restaurant; the Atrium Bistro situated within the Atrium Clubhouse; the Silverstone Bar; and the Terrace café in the leisure club.

Afternoon tea and private dining is also available.
