Commenting on Hills’ appointment, general manager at Raithwaite Sandsend Alejandro Torrecilla said: “We are absolutely thrilled to announce Andy Hill as head chef at Raithwaite Sandsend. Andy is a brilliantly talented chef and we are already seeing the fruit of his labour, with much more to come.”
Hill will take the helm at Raithwaite’s The Brasserie and Poacher’s Bar. At The Brasserie, Hills’ current menu focuses on his interest in foraging and scouring the woodlands and the hotel’s kitchen garden.
The Poacher’s Bar serves cocktails as well as light bites, including truffled cauliflower mac and cheese or freshly caught Whitby fish and chips.
