Reza Najafi


Reza joins Brunning and Price with nearly 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry and fresh from managing the oldest seafood restaurant in Scotland. He is married to Sarah, who he met whilst picking grapes in France, and has two grown-up children. Reza is happiest with a gun in his hand, but don't worry... not at work - he has a real passion for shooting game and found his love of the field sport while living in Edinburgh. He also enjoys running and says the most embarrassing moment of his life was having to sing the National Anthem to Princess Diana and Princes William and Harry in a Japanese restaurant in London. You'll have to ask him for the full story! He has also served Prince Charles and the Duke of Edinburgh over the years. Reza is absolutely delighted to be managing the Old Courthouse in Cheltenham.
