General Manager

More info

“Beginning my career in 2000 at the Hotel L’Hermitage in Jersey, I have taken up a pivotal position 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.

As a General Manager I am always looking for a beautiful property in a great location and Burley Manor is just that – A wonderful restaurant & rooms in a very special location! I love the concept of a country house with a twist, it makes Burley Manor very special and I like to be different.

We strive to ensure that all of our guests have a memorable and enjoyable stay with us, so my biggest tip to people visiting would be to take advantage of the team’s skills & knowledge of the area and everything about the Burley Manor experience. I’d also highly recommend sinking into a sofa in our lounge or drawing room for the evening and let me choose you one of our exceptional wines to enjoy.”



Executive Chef

“Having had 20 years experience in the catering industry, working in many rosette & Michelin star restaurants across England & Wales, I came to work in the kitchen at Burley Manor over a year ago. 

The beauty of running a kitchen in the New Forest is the ability to source produce from forest to coast and the unrivaled choice of local suppliers we have is so unique. Not to mention that view as you drive up to the Manor – we’re very lucky.

Our kitchen garden full of veg and herbs is also one of my favourite things about working here. We utilise these fresh ingredients in our dishes daily and that is a true pleasure as a chef.

My tip to guests eating here would be to try an evening with friends or family in the Butler’s Pantry, where you’ll see your food being cooked right in front of you in our wood-fired kitchen by us – An experience like no other!”

“Watching the transformation of Burley Manor since the very start has given me great pride to welcome guests and to see them enjoy it as much as I knew they would. It has been a fantastic journey from the start of the renovations right up until today and I look forward to seeing it grow even more in the future.

What I love about the Manor is the picturesque views and New Forest surroundings, the wellbeing treatment rooms and ultimately the team I work with!

My tip to guests staying with us would have to be to indulge in our tasty afternoon tea following a luxurious wellbeing treatment with Jasmine, our fantastic therapist”.
