Goldsborough Hall near Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, has appointed Adam Thur as head chef of its one-AA-rosette restaurant.
Hungarian-born Thur joins the property from the Star Inn the City in York and the Star Inn at Harome, where he was senior sous chef.
His style of cooking is modern British and he will use fruit and vegetables from the property's kitchen gardens, alongside local and artisan producers.
Thur said: "Goldsborough is a wonderfully inspiring and friendly place to work. I am looking forward to having the opportunity to develop creative menus, inspired by such an amazing rural location. I am lucky to have the kitchen gardens here too….you simply can't beat your own produce, fresh from the garden."
Owner Mark Oglesby, added: "We're so pleased to have Adam join the team at Goldsborough. With Adam now on board, we aim to elevate the dining experience to the highest level, complementing the hall's royal heritage. We wish to delight our guests with dishes which exemplify a fresh, modern look at Yorkshire produce, enjoyed in a most spectacular setting."
Goldsborough Hall is a 17th century Grade II listed stately home with 12 bedrooms, which holds five stars in the AA's Bed & Breakfast Guide. It was once home to Princess Mary, daughter of King George V, in the 1920s.
