We’re delighted to announce the arrival of our newly-appointed Terrace Operations Manager, Alin Rosianu, who joins the team at The Montagu Arms following nearly ten years in the hospitality industry.
Having begun his career as a waiter at home in Bucharest, Romania, Alin has made his way to the beautiful New Forest bringing with him a wealth of expertise and experience.
Previously the Assistant Restaurant Manager at Lympstone Manor Hotel in Exmouth, home to a Michelin star restaurant created by the famous Michael Caines, a holder of two Michelin stars for 18 consecutive years. Michael Caines MBE is one of the UK’s most celebrated and acclaimed chefs and Lympstone Manor marks the pinnacle of his career to date. When asked what Alin learnt from Michael himself, he remembered a phrase that he used often #noreasonjustpassion. A good mantra he maintains to this day.
Alin fell in love with the Montagu Arms from the moment he walked through the front door. “The character of the building along with the beautiful gardens makes a great impression, but it was during the interview with general manager Andrew and head chef Matt that I realised, this is where I wanted to be. Members of my family are in the hospitality industry so I fell into it naturally and I have had the best journey to get to where I am today.”
Alin started out at Caru' cu Bere in Romania – winner of the TopHotel Awards best restaurant category for seven consecutive years. At the age of 18, he fell in love with the diversity of the industry and the different characters he got to work with.
“You learn something new each day. To be truly part of a team who share the same passion as you is an incredible thing. You get to pass on your experiences to junior members of staff and watch them grow and develop too, which for me is priceless.”
The guest experience is number one on Alin’s priority list and he is looking forward to the months ahead at The Montagu Arms Hotel as he settles into his new role.
“Over the past few years, I have received many compliments but nothing compares to the expression on my customers’ faces. It says a thousand words. I hope to see many more happy faces as I begin my journey here at The Montagu Arms.”
During his spare time, Alin enjoys walking and is keen to get out and explore what the New Forest has to offer.
A stay at the Montagu Arms is memorable, luxurious and lavish so why not book your retreat to the country?
