Executive head chef Terry Balme, who has been in the role since August, has been joined by “experienced” hotel management couple, John King and Agata Swidowska.
According to the hotel, King and Swidowska bring experience from their time at a number of Red Carnation properties, including luxury hotels in the Channel Islands and some time at Claridge’s.
The hotel said Josh Flegg, previously at Fritton Lake Private Members club, will also bring his “very own flair” for customer service, alongside young talent both front and back of house.
It revealed after a busy summer the hotel is now focusing on spending some time training the team ready for a busy 2022 season.
King and Swidowska said: “After many years of hospitality experience working in four- and five-star hotels across the country, our aim is to ensure we continue to be the leading hotel in Lowestoft and the surrounding area while building on our offering to the local community.
“Our intention is to offer great hospitality and a home away from home to our guests, so they have the very best experience while staying, dining, or visiting the Hog Hotel.
They added: “The support and welcome from the hotel’s regular dining guests has been genuinely overwhelming and together with Terry we have great plans for next year including a regular and fabulous afternoon tea from February and a summer BBQ programme, as well as enhancing the lunch and bar offer.”
