‘I love working with local produce and certainly the Dales region and the Bolton Abbey estate itself is inspiring and there’s a lot to explore. I am looking forward to creating some new dishes to reflect the best that the area has on offer for our customers’ enjoyment. The Burlington at The Devonshire Arms has an incredible reputation and I look forward to developing the role and heading up a great team.’
