Gareth Hussey joins the Punch Bowl Inn as GM

Gareth Hussey has joined the two-AA-rosette, nine-bedroom Punch Bowl Inn and restaurant at Crosthwaite in Cumbria as general manager.

Hussey joins the inn with rooms from the Cottage in the Wood in Keswick, prior to which he was duty manager at the Armathwaite Hall Country House Hotel.

He intends to develop the inn's food reputation further develop by introducing a new private dining experience complete with Champagne, canapés and a tasting menu from this autumn.

The pub, originally built in the 17th century, was owned by Steven Doherty from 1995 to 2006, the first Englishman to be head chef of the then three-Michelin-starred restaurant Le Gavroche, Acorn Award winner and 1997 Cateys Pub Operator of the Year. It is now owned by Richard Rose and the kitchen is overseen by head chef Arthur Bridgeman Quin.
