What our people think!

Chris Parker, Sommelier

Chris Parker, Sommelier

"Since arriving at Lime Wood in 2013, my passion for all beverage has really developed and that was due to the wonderful training and tasting opportunities provided through our suppliers and managers. Working for Angela Hartnett and Luke Holder has allowed me to gain an understanding of what passion truly is but more importantly to see it in action on a daily basis. Working for dynamic company, run by dynamic people is exactly what hospitality should be. It has made me really understand that hospitality can be a career not just a job."

"The freedom the company gives you to create your own ideas and put them into action is phenomenal.
Growing our own managers is what we are about, giving people the opportunity to grow within and helping each individual, no matter what their needs, to reach the goals they wish to achieve."

Tom Pyke, Receptionist & Budding Entrepreneur

"I have been with the company and mainly worked at Lime Wood for just under 5 years. Shortly after I started I was asked if I would like to join the Budding Entrepreneur training programme and jumped at the amazing opportunity to progress and develop myself further within the company. I have ambitions in the future of being a Hotel General Manager and believe that being in such a great company and having the people around me that I do, I can achieve this."

Dan Humphries, Junior Sous Chef

"The work ethic of the kitchen and the whole ethos of head chef Luke Holder is a way of life and should be for any chef with the true passion and love for food and hospitality. The huge supply of techniques and knowledge that is contained within the kitchen is so unconditionally shared to the team with the single aim to develop every Chef that has joined to be the best that they can be and as far as you are willing to take it is how far Lime Wood is committed to take you."

"My role is extremely interesting. I enjoy managing a hard working team that deliver a high level of customer service to all guests that enter the spa. A fairly new addition to my role is managing our retail space 'Curated by Lime Wood’ which had enabled me to develop a better understanding of retail and added new skills. Being one step ahead of other establishments gives us unique identity, this creates the wow factor for the guests when they arrive which makes the job so rewarding."
