Joe Riley

Fine Dining Manager

Joe has worked in the industry for four years starting as a Waiter at a restaurant in Belper. Along with completing his A-Levels, he rose through the ranks to a managerial position at a local country Pub and Restaurant, despite only being 19! He lays this down to his passion for the industry and desire to succeed.

“Zest was an opportunity I could not refuse as it is one of the best restaurants in Derby, winning Best Restaurant in Derby 2013. I hope to take Zest to the next level”

In his spare time he does a lot for acting in Belper and Derby and is a huge fan of Formula 1.
