An Ottery restaurant is expanding its team with the addition of a new chef and events manager.

Rob Tanner will join head chef Mark Russell in the Rusty Pig’s kitchen and Beatrice Hunt will take on the eateries catering bookings for weddings and parties.

Rob has worked at a number of high class restaurants such as Claridges, Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and Le Gavroche.

He said: “I dined at the 
Rusty Pig one evening and 
was so blown away by the set up, I made enquiries about work.”

Beatrice spent three years as a member of long-haul cabin crew but decided to swap the skies for event management after finding about the role.

She said: “It’s an ideal role for me; using the experience I gained through my studies and a year’s placement in Australia working for Marriot Hotels is already proving invaluable.”

Rusty Pig owner Robin Rea said: “We’re all excited to grow the Rusty Pig team with impressive new talent. I’m delighted to give a warm welcome to Rob and Beatrice.”
