About the Hotel

Rachael Henley

General Manager

Since starting in December 2020, Rachael’s passion for people and work ethic has been admirable. Whilst the hotel closed in December due to lockdown restrictions, Rachael played an instrumental role in setting up new service systems, whilst enhancing standards and processes, all vital changes for the success of the hotel’s latest reopening in May. Prior to the Fife Arms, Rachael held important operational and managerial positions, most recently as Food & Beverage Manager at Grantley Hall in Yorkshire and at The Idle Rocks Hotel in Cornwall.

Adam Maddock

Head Chef

Devonshire born and raised; Adam developed a passion for the culinary scene from a young age. After an apprenticeship with the Tanner brothers at only 18 years old, he started his career at Gidleigh Park working with Michael Caines MBE, continuing to refine his craft with Martin Burge at Whatley Manor. It was his experience and passion that soon led Adam to hold senior positions in Michelin-starred restaurants around the country. Adam’s culinary philosophy focuses on ‘less is more’ and believes supporting local business and game keepers, whilst letting the changing seasons dictate his dishes, is fundamental to a menu.
