Palé Hall hotel has announced the appointment of Adam Cleal as head pastry chef.
Adam joins the team at the hotel, which was awarded three AA Rosettes in September 2017.
Owned by Alan and Angela Harper, Palé Hall is located on the edge of Snowdonia National Park, set in Wales, offering an extensive menu and a variety of wines.
Adam Cleal’s appointment as head pastry chef marks his return to Palé Hall following his work with the hotel in September 2016 to help with its launch. Adam honed his patisserie skills at two Michelin starred Gidleigh Park under the helm of Michael Caines in 2014 before joining the team at Palé Hall during their launch period.
Following this, he worked at Lympstone Manor, Devon before being invited to return to Palé Hall to head up the pastry section, presiding over his own delicious desserts and sweet treats at the hotel for guests and locals.
General manager Harry Shepherd warmly welcomes Adam’s appointment at Palé Hall, saying: “We are very excited to welcome Adam as Head Pastry Chef here at Palé Hall. He played a key part within our launch team and we hope his return to the hotel in this new role will help raise the bar for pastry offerings at Palé Hall even higher. We can’t wait to see what Adam has planned for our new afternoon tea menu”.
