Opening Summer 2018


We are currently researching the history of the pub and we'll share it here when it's finished. If you have any information from times gone by you'd like to share we'd love to hear from you so please get in touch.

Our crew

As our crew come on board, we'll be adding them here so you can get to know some faces...


Front of house

Sean Parker


Sean takes the reins here at the Highwayman after earning his spurs at our busy sister pub in Manchester, Worsley Old Hall. Sean has been with Brunning and Price for just over 6 years, working at lots of different pubs and gaining invaluable experience. When we advertised the role, he jumped at the chance to move up North and join us, and we're really happy he did. He is a keen football fan and, if you stand still for too long, he'll enjoy telling you of all his triumphs from his playing days. Luckily for us, these ended a long ago. Known for his big personality, he’s sure to become well known in and around the local area and when he's not working hard behind the bar, he'll likely be found supping on pint of cask ale with the locals and chatting the evening away.

Lauren O'Hagan


Lauren joined us in September 2017 and is a great member of the team, Lauren has previously worked in a few of the local bars and on the farm tending to the many animals, but we are thankful she prefers pulling pints than milking cows. In her spare time she likes going on long walks with her dog, riding her horse and if has any time left then spends it with Ben (our sous chef) as their eyes meet over the pass and are now an together as a happy couple.

Elliott Street


Elliot has been with us since last summer and has been in the pub trade since he left school. He loves a challenge and has shown that by recently being promoted to Supervisor. In his spare time, he loves going to watch the rugby, often with a pint after with his mates.


Ben Sandiford

Sous Chef

Ben started work here in Feb this year after working at a tapas restaurant in Preston City centre. He has only been here a short time but has quickly become a key member of the team. On his days off, he likes to disappear up to The Lakes on his mountain bike, but if you're looking for him, you can guarantee he'll be back with us later that evening enjoying a well-earned post-ride pint at the bar.

Ben Millings

Chef de Partie

Ben started here at the beginning of summer, having previously worked in a pizzeria. He came to the Highwayman to expand his knowledge and has soon become a great member of the team. When he's not working, he can be found in the local pub with his friends and often with our Sous Chef Ben.

Bart Bednarski

Chef de Partie

Bart started working at the Highwayman at the start of the year. From day one he has been a big character in the kitchen, and takes a lot of pride in his work. On his days off he enjoys going out on his bicycle, finishing with one or two pints back at the bar. If you don't see Bart-don't worry, you'll certainly hear him!
