Restaurant Manager Gareth Newton

Gareth Newton is a native of the Cartmel Peninsula, having grown up in the village of Allithwaite, before progressing to Dallam School and then to college. Like many in the hospitality trade Gareth started working in the industry whilst studying.

He initially worked at the Pig and Whistle in Cartmel, before moving on to the Holland Hall Country House Hotel in 2008, where he started as a trainee manager. Gareth rapidly progressed becoming hotel restaurant manager, as well as looking after conferencing and banqueting.

By 2011 he had joined L’Enclume, before joining Holbeck Ghyll in 2014, initially as assistant restaurant manager, but it wasn’t long before he was promoted. In 2015 he took the opportunity to join the team at Forest Side, Grasmere, and the chance to re-acquaint himself with his old colleague Kevin Tickle, initially as assistant restaurant manager, but again it wasn’t long until he was promoted to restaurant manager.

Gareth not one to rest on his laurels having considerably enhanced the dining experience at our sister hotel, Forest Side, has now set his sights on helping to develop the dining experience at Hipping Hall, so earlier in the summer of 2018 he joined the team rolled up his sleeves and got stuck in.

Alongside all that sports mad Gareth is a proud dad of two boys and when he has time, not that he has too much… he likes to keep his hand in with the odd game of footy, though fortunately for us he has managed to escape Gareth Southgate’s gaze for the time being…
