Chef Tom Kerridge is to oversee the food and beverage operations at the Stock Exchange hotel in Manchester, backed by former Manchester United footballers Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville.
Giggs’ and Neville’s GG Hospitality, which also operates Hotel Football in Manchester, will launch the 41-bedroom Stock Exchange hotel in the fourth quarter of this year, after a renovation of the Edwardian building, which dates back to 1906.
Kerridge, who runs the two Michelin starred The Hand & Flowers in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, said: “This is a really exciting opening for us. The hotel is going to be stunning and we’re very happy to be working with GG Hospitality. We can’t say much at this stage, but I can say that we’ll be bringing a bit of Marlow up to Manchester. We are very much looking forward to being a part of the city and joining the exciting and vibrant Manchester food scene.”
The Hand and Flowers is one of three restaurants Kerridge runs in Marlow, which is also home to his Michelin-starred pub The Coach, and The Butcher’s Tap. He also runs another hotel restaurant at Kerridge’s Bar & Grill in the Corinthia in London.
Winston Zahra, CEO of GG Hospitality, said: “We are looking forward to opening the Stock Exchange hotel and will be releasing all of the details in the coming weeks. We are especially happy to have partnered up with Tom on the food and beverage side of the hotel and are very much looking forward to working with Tom and his team in Manchester.”
