About Us

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

History

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...


Kitchen

Peter Illes

Senior Sous Chef

Peter loves everything about being in a strong kitchen team working hard for each other and producing delicious tasting dishes. When Peter is away from the kitchen he enjoys most of all going to the movies with friends.

Tom Puttock

Chef

After spending four and half years behind the pans at the Sydney Opera House, Tom returned to the UK to catch up with his friends and family. After taking a job at the Aspinall Arms in the Ribble Valley to save for a trip to Europe Tom fell in love with pub life and decided to stay on home soil and join the opening team at Parrot via one or two of our other pubs. Tom has buckets of creative talent and infectious energy which makes him a joy to have around, particularly when the going gets tough.
