Front of house

Andrew Grant


Andy joined us in April of 2002 and was promoted to head chef in September 2003. He is a bit of a fit geezer, and professes to enjoy football, swimmimg, rugby, judo and golf - or is that just watching them on telly? In 2010 he made the move to front of house, and is now responsible for the whole shooting match: but he's taken to it like a duck to water, and is swimming around happily.

Sharon Brocklehurst

Deputy Manager

Our Shazza is a ray of sunshine with a beaming smile and a personality to match. In a previous life she worked as a gym assistant, so she likes to keep fit. She can often be found running around Conwy bright and early, but does still enjoy her Pinot Grigio. If you ask her if she's having a small, medium or large, her reply would be the bottle, not that she has a problem, she assures us! Outside of PYB she enjoys spending time with her husband Pete, her daughters Hollie and Georgia and of course, Logan the dog


Jonathan Rathbone

Head Chef

Johnny came from the Queens Head at Glanwyddan to join the company while still doing his NVQ level 3, and has not looked back since - after all, he's the head chef now. He is a demon golfer on the side, and is a keen participant on the company golf days where he has an excellent track record.

Sean Smith

Sous Chef

Affectionately known as Smudger, Sean is a happy chef with an army background, so he's disciplined and hard working, quiet and very easy going. He's an ex boxer who loves playing the guitar: so there's a lot going on there. He's also a devoted Dad and husband.

David Bowen

Sous Chef

Dave 'Trilby' joined us just before Christmas 2011 so he was thrown into the heat of a very busy kitchen: luckily for us he settled in well and proved to be a hard worker. We've been told that he has set his sights on the top job... so watch out Alun. On his days off he enjoys spending time with his children; Harrison, Jacob and Mia, eating good food, and going for long walks on the beach.

Robert Williams

Kitchen Porter

Robert has been KP'ing for some 20 years, so he's just about got the hang of it by now. The waitresses all love him because he polishes the cutlery for them – he knows the way to a girl's heart. Bobby is a mad gardener and a great family man - he has five brothers and five sisters, would you believe, and has been with his partner for ten years.


Phyllis Forsyth


Phyllis Forsyth is married to Toby and they have two grown up boys and two grandsons. Phyllis was serving in the W.R.A.C when she met her husband and lived in Germany for six years enjoying the good life. She enjoys walking, music and entertaining her family, and a kinder person you couldn't hope to meet.

Ann Driver


Ann is a Yorkshire lass and proud of it. She emigrated to North Wales back in 1972 and claims she would never go back to her home town of Leeds because things are too hectic there. She loves gardening and walking with her husband, and is no stranger to the dance floor - in fact as a recent staff party suggests, she is a thorough-bred party animal.

Steven Phoenix


Steve arrived before we even opened, when he planned, designed and landscaped the pub gardens, which were in a right old state. He is our full time gardener/handyman and fire-starter etc..If it needs doing, he will do it, especially if you ask nicely.
