You will be welcomed by Restaurant Manager, Ben Garrard, entertained by supervisors Victoria, Simon, Hannah,Annabel and spoiled by professional barman Liam and dazzled by the talented kitchen team led by James. All of our friendly team look forward to welcoming you. "To be inspired and to inspire others to continuously improve and push the boundaries of personal and professional achievement whilst maintaining a fun, team oriented environment."
