Appointed food and beverage director
At Macdonald Hotels (UK) in Bathgate, United Kingdom
Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, one of the UK’s largest privately owned hotel groups, has appointed Andy Lowe as food and beverage director. With more than 30 years’ experience in the industry at operations such as GLH Hotels, David Lloyd Leisure, and Spirit Pubs, Lowe will be working to develop menus using local and seasonal produce. He said: “I’m a firm believer in delivering the highest quality dining experience to guests, which Macdonald Hotels shares with me. Recently the group has been shaking up its dining offering; this has seen them install a number of different dining options across the country – from high-quality, yet casual dining at our Scottish Steak House restaurants to modern British informal dining at Acanthus. I am looking forward to further delivering this offer, whilst turning the same level of attention to the brand’s beverage proposition.
