Glen Watson appointed chef director of the Belfry

Glen Watson has been appointed chef director of the Belfry in Warwickshire to oversee the food and beverage element of a multimillion-pound refurbishment at the 324-bedroom resort hotel.

He joins the property, which is managed by De Vere Hotels, from the Albert Roux Consultancy, where he has worked as chef consultant for seven years. Earlier in his career, he worked at Gleneagels hotel, London's Savoy hotel and Hanbury Manor Hotel & Country Club in Ware, Hertfordshire.

The Belfry's main restaurant, the Atrium, has recently closed, and will reopen as the 250-seat Belfry Bar & Grill, with a part-open theatre kitchen, in October. Its former 1970's style buffet is to be replaced by an a la carte menu, with several dishes such as cote de boeuf being carved at the table.

Details of a second, more informal restaurant, the Marketplace, are still to be finalised.
