About Us

Here is just a little info to let you get to know us better...


Here is little potted history of our pub and the local area... if you have a spare minute or two and maybe a cup of tea (or is that a G&T), we think it's well worth read.

If you'd like to put a name to a face, allow us to introduce you to the crew...

Front of house

Aimee Sharples


Aimee studied Costume at uni going on to work on shows such as The Lion King and The Olympics. After a few years she was lured away to pub life, swapping fixing costumes for pulling pints. A keen hiker in her spare time, she loves nothing more than being outdoors, climbing mountains but always finishing with a nice glass of wine in a good pub. It sounds like her change in career path was a perfect fit.

Sinead Sharp


Sinead is an absolute trooper and is also a local girl who's 'born and bred' in the area. A horse and general animal fanatic, if you need any interesting facts on the like, she's your go to girl! An ever present you're almost guaranteed to see this 'lunchtime legend' if you pop in from a nice brisk walk.


Richard Platt

Head Chef

A Staffordshire chap and confirmed family man with two lovely children, Richard joins us at the Highwayman from one of our sister pubs, the Hand and Trumpet. A keen rambler, he’s got his routes planned out and has laced up his walking boots already.


Natalie Platt


Natalie is a super speedy cleaner who used to be a dancer. She can often be seen combining the two, with an effortless salsa whilst polishing tables. She has two lovely girls with the head chef Richard and in her spare time she loves nothing more than to do a few drawings to relax!
