Tavistock Leisure Appoints Federico Trulli as Food and
November 2011 - A familiar face is returning to Wearside to head up one of Sunderland’s most popular venues.
Federico Trulli, who is originally from Rome, has just been appointed Food and Beverage Manager at the Best Western Roker Hotel, Roker Terrace, where he originally worked six years ago.
The 29 year-old, who now lives in Sunderland, previously spent three years as Restaurant Manager at the hotel, before leaving to hone his skills at various outlets around the North East.
His return coincides with a complete rebranding of the hotel’s Tavistock Italia Retro restaurant, previously Tavistock Italia, including the launch of a new menu offering a wider range of ‘retro’ Italian classics and a selection of more contemporary cuisine.
Federico said: ”I am so excited to be back at the Best Western Roker Hotel and in particular to be taking charge of the new Tavistock Italia Retro restaurant, whose food and décor is so authentic that I really feel like I’m back home in Rome.”
Tavistock Leisure Ltd, which owns the Best Western Roker Hotel, is one of the North East’s leading leisure firms, operating more than 10 bars, restaurants and hotels across the region, including a second branch of Tavistock Italia Retro, which is now being run under tenancy in South Shields.
Mark Hird, Managing Director for Tavistock Leisure said: “Federico is an extremely talented restaurant manager and we are delighted to have him back on board as we enter an exciting new phase for the Tavistock Italia Retro restaurant and the Best Western Roker Hotel.
