    Originally from Warrington, Dave brings Northern charm alongside a decade of extensive experience in fine dining to his new role at the five-star hotel.

     

    With an impressive history of Executive Head Chef roles at respected hotels including the Crewe Hall Hotel and the Park Royal Hotel, Dave hopes to bring a fresh feel to the restaurant this year.

    Dave’s passion for food started at an early age, being runner-up in the De Vere’s Young Chef of the Year in 2000 and eventually winning the accolade in 2001.

    Dave commented: “I am thrilled to join the River Restaurant at the Lowry Hotel Manchester in my new role as Executive Chef. I hope to bring my new creative vision to the restaurant this year using the local and seasonal produce that the hotel is famous for and creating classic British dishes to a high standard.”

    Working with the team, Dave has started introducing new dishes to the hotel’s classic menu, with an aim of a full menu update later this year when the restaurant undergoes major developments.
