Front of house

Ollie Simmonds


Ollie has been at the White Hart since day dot, and is well liked by both staff and customers. He has an amazing eye for detail and knows what all of our regulars are drinking even before they do. Ollie loves his rums and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the streets of London city, useful if you get lost on a night on the town.

Libby Rackham

Assistant Manager

Libby has been bubbly and enthusiastic from the minute she first stepped foot in The White Hart nearly two years ago. When she isn't telling people that she volunteers with special needs children, that she is a recovering vegetarian or that she is a First Aider, she can be found prancing around the pub with a big smile on her face.

Sean Hudson

Bar Supervisor

Sean has been with the White Hart for a fair few years now, so knows his way round the Hart like the back of his hand. He is a keen skier and loves the white slopes of the Pyrenees. A hot tipple and a high mountain is just about Babylon for Sean.

Millie Williamson

Bar/Waiting Staff

Millie has been coming to the White Hart as a regular with her family for many years and has finally joined the team for real. She has fitted in so well and we are very pleased to have her running around with her can do attitude.

Nick Spicer

Bar/Waiting Staff

Nick is most definitely a customer favourite. He is quite willing to have a chat with anyone who walks through the door and is extremely polite. He is a big fan of comic book characters and his dream is to be an extra in a Star Wars movie, May the force be with you Nick.

Nicholas Navarro

Bar/Waiting Staff

Nick is hands down the best dressed member of staff. His bow tie, braces combos are a thing of beauty. Nick is a cool customer at work and in his spare time plays ice hockey and listens to spanish music.

Jemma Holland

Bar/Waiting Staff

Jemma worked with us previously and has come back after a brief spell renovating her house. She is a big time horsey fan and used to play professional rugby. She has 2 little boys that keep her on her toes, in fact she comes to work simple to get a break, Now that's impressive!

Lewis Blight

Bar/Waiting Staff

Our Lewis enjoys the finer things in life. He also enjoys posing for sophisticated photos in gin bars up in London town. Lewis is a man of many talents - as well as pouring the perfect pint, he plays the bass and performed at the pub on New Year's Eve with his band. Work is never dull with Lewis around.

Benjamin Pearce

Bar/Waiting Staff

Ben likes to take care of himself, regularly going to the gym and sleeping with rollers in his hair every night to give him that Greek-god-with-golden-curls look. He is also a family man and was very excited to tell everyone when his little nephew took his first steps.

Laura Saich

Bar/Waiting Staff

Laura is one bright bulb. She has a degree in Psychology (very useful when working in a pub!) and it is her life ambition to memorise the Oxford English Dictionary. When she's not working, she's out being a social butterfly and always knows the best places to go. She's a great giggle to work with!


Alasdair Mackenzie

Sous Chef

Alasdair has worked for the company for many many years now, progressing onwards and upwards with each of his roles. Working his way up the ladder. He is a truly likable guy, and a laid back character with a cool head and heaps of experience. Alasdair once said that if he wasn't a chef he would pursue a career as a dog surfing instructor, fair enough!

Tony McDonald

Senior Sous Chef

After some time away from the hustle and bustle of busy kitchens, Tony has decided its time to step back in, and were sure glad he did. He has joined us after a short stint finding his feet again at Jamies Italian. Tony is rather an illusive character but we know he has two daughters, supports Sunderland football team and hails from sunny South Shields in Newcastle.

James Monsell

Kitchen Porter

James came to us to do some work experience and simply never left. He is extremely polite and always has time to ask how you are. James enjoys watching films, playing computer games and going on trips with his family.

Jim Ellis-Leagas

Kitchen Porter

Jim is Mr Diligent. He must have all the facts in order to to make the most informed choice and then follows that through with complete precision. He is also bonkers and great fun to share a pint with. Having previously worked as a Japanese translator in London, Jim is now much happier cleaning absolutely everything at the White Hart.


Richard Dunning


Rich is a jack of all trades and can turn his hand to pretty much anything. When he is not gardening or tending to one of the jobs on Damien's ever expanding 'to do' list, he is promoting live music at the local club and repairing computers. He does manage to find time to have a few jars of an evening too, of course.
