Rory Kelly-Naughton

FOH Operations Director

Education

I attended the Christian Brother In Omagh and went on to the University of Ulster to do Hospitality Management


Last Job

I was the Operations Manager for boutique Hotel in South Kensington and before that, a 700 bedroom Monster Hotel in High Street Kensington.


Hometown

Although I am London born, Tyrone in Ireland will always be home. I grew up there and went to school there. It was such a massive difference moving from the City to the Country but I enjoyed every moment.


BEST PART OF YOUR JOB

Two fold for me. One, working with some of the best names in Hospitality gives me immense satisfaction. Two, seeing people who would never dream of working in hospitality find a home with us.


GO TO DRINK

As I get older, a good cup of Yorkshire Gold Tea hits the spot. Although I am trying to cut down, I do like a Guinness from time to time.


RESTAURANT RECOMMENDATION

In London, I would say Brasserie Zedel as it’s a show stopping room with great food and it wont break the bank. Bone Daddies is also a worth recommendation.


INTERESTING FACT

I once got mega drunk with the boyband 5ive in Camden one Friday Night.
