My intention has always been to expand the business portfolio whilst generating a wider market for Jersey produce. The Hay Hill management team have totally embraced the island-inspired philosophy and I am thrilled to showcase my best suppliers to their members in the heart of Mayfair”. 12 Hay Hill is due to open in the first quarter of 2015 and will be Shaun’s first establishment outside the Channel Islands. It promises to deliver a new breed of club for the international business sector, offering members a luxurious environment in which to work and play all under one roof.
