A warm welcome to two new faces at Maison Talbooth and Le Talbooth restaurant.

Daniel Courtney joins Maison Talbooth as General Manager. He comes to us from another well known Pride of Britain hotel Calcot Manor in the Cotswolds. During his time at Calcot he worked in all aspects of the business – in the spa, in the restaurants and lastly as assistant general manager, so has plenty of experience to guide the Maison through this next, very exciting stage in his life. Do call in and meet Daniel next time you are passing, he will be delighted to show you round the hotel with all the new facilities.

Johan Brouckaert joins Le Talbooth as restaurant manager; he has an impeccable pedigree in hospitality and has worked all over Europe as well as The Capital in London and Clivedon in Berkshire. When you are next at Le Talbooth, you will easily be able to spot Johan; he’s very tall and is constantly having to duck to get through the doors. Johan wishes that he had come to Le Talbooth earlier in his career; he thinks that Le Talbooth is in a wonderful setting beside the river Stour and is really looking forward to a brilliant summer with guests dining outside every day!
