Seaham Hall Appoints New Head Chef
A CHEF, whose career has taken him to some of the world's most glamorous locations, is to lead the team at one of the North East's most prestigious hotels.
Seaham Hall Hotel, Seaham - voted Small Hotel of the Year at the North East Tourism Awards 2013 - has recruited Simon Bolsover in the position of head chef.
Simon joins the hotel from the AA rosetted Great Fosters at Egham, Surrey.
However, in a career spanning almost 25 years, he has also held senior positions at hotels in Bermuda and Canada along with Linthwaite House Hotel, Windermere.
In his new position he will be responsible not only for the hotel's recently launched Byron's Bar and Grill, but for its pan-Asian Ozone restaurant within the award-winning Serenity Spa, under the culinary directorship of Martin Blunos.
"Seaham Hall has a vast amount of potential," said Simon, who has relocated to the North East from Surrey, "and I am looking forward to developing that potential, sourcing the finest regional ingredients and building on its already excellent reputation."
"We are delighted to welcome Simon to Seaham Hall, said general manager Ross Grieve. "Not only does he bring a wealth of experience but his creativity and skill will make him a crucial part of the team."
