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!
Joining us as Deputy Manager is Krissy. She has worked for B&P since the age of 17. She may be a familiar face if you have been to our sister pub the Fox where she has worked for years. If you don't find her working here, you'll find her walking her dog Storm or in the pub watching her favourite football team Liverpool.
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.

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.

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.

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.
