Darlington’s Rockliffe Hall has hired Jatin Parmar as the new Old Hall food and beverage manager, where he’ll oversee the running of the resort’s flagship restaurant, The Orangery, which is headed up by executive chef, Richard Allen.
Parmar has a glittering CV from his 13 years in the food and beverage industry, having worked at some of the UK’s top restaurants. His last role was as manager of the two Michelin-starred Sat Bains in Nottingham, and prior to that he was restaurant manager for three years at L’Enclume in Cartmel, Cumbria which also has two Michelin stars.
On his new appointment, Parmar said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining the team at Rockliffe Hall. After working in standalone restaurants for a while I could always see myself back in the hotel sector and where better than Rockliffe? The resort has an amazing setting and is on track to become one of the ultimate gastronomic destinations in the UK. I’m thrilled to be given the opportunity to be part of that.”
Eamonn Elliott, Rockliffe Hall’s chief executive, was equally thrilled with his new appointment: “Jatin’s reputation within the industry precedes him. He has worked at some of the UK’s top restaurants and brings with him a wealth of first class experience. The Orangery is going from strength to strength and we are very pleased to welcome Jatin to the Rockliffe Hall team.”
