Rockliffe Hall has appointed one of the best-known front-of-house names in the hospitality industry as its new Old Hall Food and Beverage Manager, where he’ll oversee the running of the five red star resort’s flagship restaurant, The Orangery, headed up by Executive Chef, Richard Allen.
Jatin Parmar, 37, has worked in the food and beverage industry for 13 years, at some of the country’s top restaurants. He was Manager at the two star Michelin Restaurant Sat Bains in Nottingham before joining Rockliffe Hall. Prior to that he was Restaurant Manager for three years at L’Enclume in Cartmel, Cumbria which also has two Michelin stars and was named Best Restaurant in Britain in The Good Food Guide, four years in a row.
Originally from Mumbai, India, Jatin studied at the Institute of Hotel Management in his home city and completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Hotel, Motel and Restaurant Management at the IHMES International Hotel School in the Isle of Man in 2003.
Jatin’s career has taken him all over the world from Australasia to East Asia, the UAE and Europe. He’s looked after royalty, Prime Ministers and celebrities. At his previous places of work he’s been instrumental in winning top accolades such as number three on the Sunday Times Best British Restaurant list and most recently Best Front of House in the Good Food Guide 2017, at Restaurant Sat Bains.
On his new appointment, Jatin says: “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, Chief Executive at Rockliffe Hall, says: “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.”
