Restaurant Manager

Georgia Wild

Born and raised right here in Dolgellau, Welsh-speaking Georgia has always adored the beauty and tranquillity of the Welsh countryside.

Her journey in the hospitality industry began as an Assistant Restaurant Manager at Pale Hall Hotel, which sits on the east side of the Eryri National Park. Here she gained her first experience in a fine-dining restaurant in an historic hotel. She left the hotel world for a while to take a managerial position at Coesfaen Spa and Lodge in Barmouth, overseeing the day-to-day operations, while getting her first experience of a rewarding team management role. Keen to fulfil her aspiration to become a Restaurant Manager, she took on the role of Assistant Restaurant Manager at Fynnon Boutique Hotel in Dolgellau, where she gained a wealth of experience and further developed her people management skills. She then joined the Penmaenuchaf team in autumn 2022, and since joining our team, has continued to thrive. With her warm smile, can-do attitude and kind nature, she’s quickly become an integral part of our family here at Penmaenuchaf.   

Kitchen Gardens

Our ingredients

Our menu is inspired by our extraordinary location and the rich larder in North Wales. All our ingredients are of the highest quality and the best the season has to offer, and supplied by our local community of excellent producers alongside what we grow in our small kitchen garden.

As all our food is prepared freshly in the hotel, we can cater for most dietary requirements with notice. Please advise us of any dietary requirements and allergies when making your booking.
