Ryan Murphy, the former head chef of The Savoy’s River Restaurant, has joined Rocco Forte’s Lowry Hotel in Manchester as executive chef.

Murphy, who told BigHospitality in March that he wanted to leave the esteemed hotel to get more in touch with produce​ and the chance to win a Michelin star, joined the five-star Manchester hotel this week.

The American-born chef will be looking to repeat his previous success outside the UK, having previously acquired a rising two-Michelin star status from Ronnums in Austria.

He said: “I am delighted to be joining the team at The Lowry Hotel, with so much great produce on our doorstep. I am looking forward to working with the farmers and suppliers to provide our customers with the best quality products.

“I believe a satisfying dining experience requires more than just successful pairings of flavours, I spend a lot of time thinking about the evolution of a meal and my menus are a culmination of that. In the end it’s all about the guest and what the guest wants, a job well done is the excitement in the face of our guests and the returning customer."

The 165-bedroom Lowry Hotel also features a River Restaurant and River Bar.

A replacement for Murphy has not yet been found for the River Restaurant at The Savoy, although a spokesperson for the hotel told BigHospitality the recruitment process is in the final stages.
