Genesis began his career working for hotels in the Philippines, his birthplace, followed by over nine years on a number of cruise ships in a variety of roles, eventually settling in the UK in 2013. Since then he’s worked for a number of prestigious establishments, most recently as Assistant Manager of the Michelin starred Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor Hotel.

Geoff Dale, General Manager of Thornton Hall Hotel comments: “We’re delighted to welcome Genesis to The Lawns restaurant. His background in the restaurant industry brings a wealth of skills and experience to our already award-winning restaurant and we’re certain he can help retain those accolades and indeed improve on them.”

Genesis Valenzuela comments: “The Lawns is a great establishment in a wonderful setting and I’m very happy to be here. Everyone has been very welcoming since I started and it’s a great team to be part of. I’m committed to maintaining the high standards already set and we’ll work hard to improve on them too. My main area of priority is delivering an exceptionally high level of service, paired with great communication and so I will initially be looking on how we can improve these areas. With lots of exciting plans in the pipeline for the restaurant, I’m really looking forward to the year ahead.”
