Previous Client - Pale Hall

Palé Hall is a grand historic grade two listed country house at Llandderfel, near Bala situated in the Dee Valley and at the foot of the Snowdonia National Park.

Michael and his team helped Alan and Angela bring to life their vision of Palé Hall and their passion for great hospitality. Michael and the team consulted on several elements including a pre-opening basis to implement standard operating procedures through all departments, health and safety compliance, opening contracts and ordering.

Michael and his team continued to support Palé Hall through their first year of opening focusing on the restaurant and food and beverage offering to create a relaxed and friendly dining experience. Michael mentored Head chef Gareth Stevenson for many years and so was proud for Gareth to take on the reins at the helm of the Palé kitchen. Gareth worked closely with with local farmers, growers, fishermen and food producers in North Wales to ensure that the local produce was at the heart of the menus as Michael has always held a passion for. Under Michael’s guidance, Gareth created a menu with his own personality and vision emerging through each of the dishes.

Offering luxurious accommodation in tranquil surroundings with 18 unique and elegant bedrooms set amongst beautiful, landscaped grounds and the rolling welsh Valley.
