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



Stuart is a B & P veteran having started out as Deputy Manager at the Pant in 2012. In order to gain more experience he decided to head out onto the roving circuit; 20+ pubs later he took up a permanent role as manager at the Rowbarge, Woolhampton. With a long-term goal of moving back to the North in mind, Stuart took one step closer by taking up the reins of the Falcon in Warmington. This was short lived however, as an opportunity to return to Bunbury, the village Stuart grew up in, to manage the Dysart arose.

We are fortunate here at the Mytton & Mermaid that Stuart loves a good challenge, as when offered the chance to be part of the restoration of our beautiful pub he just couldn't resist. Stuart, his fiancée, Jem, their two young children, Alfie and Poppy and not forgetting dog, Biscuit now reside locally and are very much enjoying exploring the wonderful county of Shropshire. They assure us this is their last move!


Senior Deputy Manager

Elliot has been part of our B&P family for a number of years, coming most recently from the Woodbridge Inn. Sharp both in dress and mind, Elliot brings with him years of experience working in various restaurants in Staffordshire. When he isn't behind the pumps, he enjoys wining and dining and has been known to jump on his bike to explore the county and maybe sample a local beer ... or two!


Deputy Manager

Cecily jumped straight into hospitality at 16 and joined B&P as a deputy manager at the Armoury 2 years ago. Her passion for the business shines through with her hard work, and the fact her dog is named Guinness! She joins the Mytton & Mermaid for the next challenge in her career.


Assistant Manager

Benji hails from Shrewsbury and has worked in hospitality for 16 years. A family man, he has been in pubs and the restaurant trade his whole adult life, working with many of the main brewing companies and restaurant chains in the local area. You're likely to find him with a coffee in his hands! An avid geek at heart he joins B&P on his next adventure.


Assistant Manager

Emma may be a familiar face at the Mytton & Mermaid, she joins us with a wealth of local knowledge having worked at the pub under its previous owners, as well as more recently working at the Riverside Inn. She found her home behind the bar and has worked up to Assistant Manager. Emma's two children take up most of her time outside of work but she still finds time to relax with her favourite drink, a proper cup of strong tea.



Kerry has been with us since our opening, after a change in career for her from Childcare - which she worked in for 20+ years! Kerry has proven herself to be a big asset to our team here at the Mytton. Her favourite drink of choice is a nice cheeky rum, preferably drank whilst lying on a beach in Jamaica!



Evie may be a familiar face to you all as she has been with us since opening. Evie proved herself as a valuable member of the team and quickly progressed to supervisor. Previously she's been trained as a mixologist, her favourite drink to whip up being a Paloma Cocktail. Before having her baby Evie practised Powerlifting - getting to competition level!



Nikki joined us at opening and is a vital member of our team. Nikki's energy is unmatched and you will always find her interacting with customers. Nikki moved into hospitality after a career in finance. In her spare time she enjoys socialising with her beloved husband and two sons.



Head Chef

Luke joined us in January 2017 but is no stranger to the world of B&P. Luke has been with the company since 2011 and through hard work and passion for great food, he's worked his way up the ranks. Luke has helped train and open all our new pub kitchens, locally the Oakley Arms in Brewood and the Physician in Birmingham and also run the kitchen at the Woodbridge Inn, Coalport. Luke is a rising star in B&P and we are extremely lucky to have his talent here at the Mytton & Mermaid. When not behind the pass he enjoys letting someone else cook for a change and is an avid Ed Sheeran fan.

You may recognise Graham from outside the pub as one of our gardeners. He has 20+ years of gardening experience including running his own business. Our plants certainly are well looked after! When he's not out in the garden he keeps himself extremely active by running and mountain biking. In his 'spare' time he builds and renovates campervans
