Staff


Front of house

Andrew Barker

Manager

Andy joined us with a degree in hospitality, having worked at the Pant for many years as a part-timer in his holidays, and is old beyond his years. He has managed the Corn Mill since its opening, and the pub is very much his baby. Andy has a sunny, upbeat personality, and is very fond of Chateau Musar, golf, his family, and days away with his mates. He is forgetful of names, so calls everybody "Cheesehead".

Gail Shaw

Senior Deputy Manager

Shawso’ to her mates. A legendary host, she worries and fusses over customers and staff alike, and clucks her way round the pub making them feel all warm and cosy. Having had a hand on the corkscrew at Gales Wine Bar for ten years before she joined us, she is very well known around Llangollen. Known to be fond of the occasional white wine spritzer.

Lisa Tawil

Deputy Manager

Lisa had been at the Corn Mill for a couple of years as a casual before she became a part of the management team. Though she lives in the village next door with her husband and two daughters, she’s never lost her Lancashire accent or her Lancashire graft - she really gets stuck in, so people always like working with her.

Daniel Morris

Trainee Assistant Manager

You will struggle to find a nicer guy than Dan. He is always eager to please and is passionate about pubs, eating food and drinking real ale. He initially joined us as a part timer but soon realised that this is his true calling. He is great to have around and has really taken the cellar and real ale side of the pub under his wing.

Annette Morris

Bar Supervisor

Annette has Llangollen, and the Corn Mill, running through her veins like cider. She's as perky as a sandboy, never stops working, and just loves looking after her customers.



Kitchen

Steven Girvin

Head Chef

With his handsome looks and Irish charm, Steve is our resident Marti Pellow look-a-like. He used to swim for the Northern Ireland Under 16's team, but now his hobbies include ale drinking, being a keen movie buff, and if he's got any time left, he enjoys DJ'ing. His talent in the kitchen has taken him to America, Cornwall and Cardiff before discovering the high life of Llangollen.

John Bevan

Senior Sous Chef

John joined us from St Davids Park hotel and has done a fair bit of cheffing around and about, including a long stint at the Bryn Howel hotel. He is a very likeable chap and has clearly had a real passion for food since his early years. He is also a bit of a biker in his spare time so if you're on a relaxing drive over the Horseshoe pass, look out.

Gavin Monk

Senior Sous Chef

Matthew Jones

Chef de Partie

Neil is Pen-y-Cae's answer to the X Factor, full of character, charm, charisma and star quality, all mixed in with some great tunes thrown out over the hot plate. He loves nothing more than spending time being chased around in the summer months by wasps - anything for an early finish and a trip to the hospital to see some nurses!



Maintenance

Glynis Davies

Cleaner/Kitchen Porter

Glynis is an absolute star. She's always happy and smiling which passes through to the rest of the team. Glynis is well known for her endless questions, and endless supply of biscuits (mainly jaffa cakes). She keeps a personal stash in the cupboard for morning tea, but because we constantly pester her for them, she’s taken it upon herself to start up a "Biscuit Club".
