Paris House restaurant in Bedfordshire has appointed Guillaume Gorichon as its new restaurant manager.
Gorichon has previously held positions at the Bath Priory, Cliveden House hotel and the Gleneagles hotel.
The Michelin-starred Paris House, set in 22 acres of deer park on Duke of Bedford's estate at Woburn, is managed as a family business by chef Phil Fanning and his wife Claire. It is backed by Phil's father-in-law and businessman Nik Millard.
The restaurant was formerly owned by 10 in 8 Fine Dining Group until it was sold after one of 10 in 8's subsidiaries, Paris House Restaurant Ltd, went into liquidation in January 2014.
Since Fanning took over, the restaurant has featured in the Waitrose Good Food Guide Top 50 list for the first time.
"After a fantastic year of growth since taking over ownership of the restaurant last January, we recruited Guillaume to raise the standards of our front of house team even further," Fanning said.
"With a strong background in wine, we are sure he will bring his distinctive style to our beverage lists also."
