Stuart Groves


Stuart is a born and bred Cheshire man who earnt his spurs at the Dysart as a young lad. He studied Business and Information Management at Liverpool Uni but the pull of the pumps was too much to resist. After a stint at the Pheasant in Burwardsley, he went on to run the Bear's Paw in Sandbach before returning to B&P. He loves to socialise with friends, is a keen mountain biker and, God forbid, enjoys golf.

Katy Tidbury

Deputy Manager

Katy started with Brunning and Price in 2012 as a part time waitress and since then has found herself working her way through the ranks up to deputy manager. On shift Katy is often found with an espresso which she likes to shot for the caffeine buzz, however off shift she is commonly found at the bar with a glass of red wine or a large gin and tonic! In her spare time Katy enjoys spending time with her boyfriend Bryan, her family and her two dogs Archie and Jasper.

Brianna O\'Sullivan

Assistant Manager

Meet Brianna, better known as Bri (yes, like the cheese). Though she is American, Bri has found a passion for our wide selection of ever changing British ales. That being said, she is not one to limit herself, and spends her spare time widening her knowledge of all things gin, wine and food. Which is perfect because, since shaving her head for Bloodwise back in September, she has found herself burdened with plenty of spare time that would otherwise be spent styling her hair.

Emma Butt


Emma, or "Butty" as she is generally known, is the maternal figure in our crew, always making sure everyone's happy and eating correctly. Leading by example, she is always fifteen minutes early for her shifts so she can squeeze in a breakfast yoghurt.

Kylea Nailer


One Half of The Rowbarge's own Mother/Daughter Duo. She may be small but she has no problem keeping the chefs in check! On her days off she spends her time caring for her horse Nasha.

Joe Dyson

Bar/Waiting Staff

The Dyson machine, or Tom Cruise some know him as. Always friendly, always reliable, loves a cider or two.


Murray Jackson

Head Chef

Muzza, to those who know the man, is all about honest home cooked food and when he's not rolling pasta, he's plotting world domination via bluetooth and a myriad of gadgets. Anyone who can control a stereo with a phone is a genius.

John Hooper

Sous Chef

John gets his passion for food from growing his own produce in his allotment. He is often making his own cider, ale, jams and pickles at home and is currently in trouble with the wife for taking over all the shelf space in the cupboards.

Alberto Bellugi

Chef de Partie

'Albert' is our football mad, chief of starters. When he's not lining up a hat-trick of charcuteries, he's playing fifa or watching Match of the Day. Alberto and Steve allow no Spurs fans in the kitchen.

George Futcher

Commis Chef

George is currently studying Media at college and were all expecting a red carpet invite when he becomes the next Speilberg. When he's not studying hard, he's buzzing about on his motorbike.

Thomas Govier

Kitchen Porter

Tom's our kitchen "chatty man". A keen sportsman, he is often found in his spare time on the rugby pitch.


Liz Cooper


Cleaner by day, Waitress by night, Liz is always happy to help where ever she is needed. Always calm and cheerful this lady has the patience of a saint! A real family lady at heart including her wonderful dog Sasha.

Ashley Atkins


A man of many handy talents, Ash is a bloke who can fix almost anything. He keeps the pub in ship shape and makes the garden look presentable all year round.

Mark Baldwin


Handyman and gardener extraordinaire. Mark will try his hand at anything. His favourite activities include, erecting a marquee or two and drinking Peroni.
