Shaun Dickens at the Boathouse, has appointed Christie Hayes as their new restaurant manager taking over from Igor Minuzzo who led the restaurant team for the past 3 years.
Christie has worked alongside Igor for owners’ Shaun and Gemma providing a service to match the quality of the food.
Shaun Dickens, owner and chef said;
“I’m thrilled to announce Christie as our new restaurant manager. Although we are very sorry to bid farewell to Igor who is leaving us to return to his native Italy with his fiancée, there was no doubt that we should look within the team for a replacement.
Christie has demonstrated a genuine passion for food and a depth of knowledge which is instantly apparent. She is a wonderful presence in the dining room, is very highly regarded by staff and guests alike and will help us with the next chapter of our growth.”
Christie Hayes, Restaurant Manager said;
“When I was 7 years old I went to the fine-dining restaurant Locanda Locatelli and to this day I can still remember everything I ate and the wonderful service that turned a meal into an experience.
“I want to run a restaurant with personality and I think that being humorous and familiar with guests can complement the highest standards of service if it is backed up with knowledge and passion. I’m so pleased that the restaurant gave me the opportunity to prove myself and had the loyalty to promote from within the team. It does prove that hard work can be recognised and rewarded and i can’t wait to start my new role.”
