Front of house

David Green

Manager

When we first came across David he had his own event management company in Llangollen, where he helped organise the Food Festival, the Hot Air Balloon festival and the Motorbike Show, amongst others. In his spare time he is a hot-air balloonist himself, and pilots his own craft. Dave earnt his spurs at our ever-busy sister pubs in Manchester, The Wharf and Worsley Old Hall before moving over the water to open The Red Fox in 2014.

Jennifer Love

Deputy Manager

Jen joined us at the Red Fox after five years at Harkers, AKA beer capital of Brunning and Price. She is working on gaps in her knowledge at present, so is working her way through our 110 strong gin collection. She is an enthusiastic home baker, and we always look forward to her coming in after days off with leftover cakes.

David Swift

Deputy Manager

Known to everyone as Swifty, Dave is our go-to beer man. He earnt his stripes at the Architect, so is used to busy places. When he's not running around the pub he's running after cricket balls, running after his daughter Matilda or drinking the fruits of his labour on the other side of the bar.

Rebecca Simmons

Junior Deputy Manager

Local lass Becky came over after a stint at Royal Liverpool during the Open whetted her appetite for pulling pints. Young and ambitious, she is partial to a gin or two which stands her in good stead for a bright B&P future. She was part of our winning duo at the company's food development awards.

Louise Jones

Trainee Assistant Manager

Louise is new to B&P but brings along with her 13 years of experience in hospitality. When not at work Louise can be found passing time at the gym, however her young children and dogs make sure she is always kept on her toes.

Laura Gaynor

Assistant Manager

Laura has been with us from the beginning, having previously worked at the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool. She is a qualified florist, which comes in really handy when Christmas comes around. She is usually found running half marathons and drinking kale smoothies when not running around the pub.

Kyle Crone

Supervisor

Kyle has been with us since last Summer,but been in the pub trade since he left school and is now with us at The Red Fox for a new venture. Laura his wife also works here and they have a 4 year old boy called Theo. In his spare time he loves fitness, sports and enjoying a pint or two on the other side of the bar.

Hannah Oxton

Supervisor

Arriving on our doorstep in 2016, Hannah has become an integral part of the team. Not one to pass on a training opportunity, she has a new found love for Malbec and has become an avid gin fanatic. When not pulling pints, she spends most of her time cooing over her little schnauzer Millie. If there's a dog in the pub, Hannah is never far away.



Kitchen

Andrew Warters

Head Chef

Andy heads up the chef team, having led the Corn Mill, Fox and Wharf kitchens for several years, so is used to extreme catering. After the somewhat intimate arrangements at some of his former kitchens, the new kitchens at the Red Fox are to Andy like the wide open plains of the Serengeti to a wildebeest. When pressure allows you'll find Andy topping up his tan at his house in Spain.

Philip Riden

Sous Chef

B&P took Phil on at the Grosvenor in 1996, when he was a fresh faced catering college student. Since then, Phil has had two stints with the company and gained some serious stripes at some busy busy places. He is only happy when he is behind the steering wheel of his Mazda MX5 which is his pride and joy, even though he's not a hairdresser....

John Blackburn

Junior Sous Chef

After working as head chef at the Woodlands Hall in Ruthin for 4 years I decided it was time for a change, and after eating at the Cornmill. I decided to apply for a position at the Dinorben Arms.I take a keen interest in cooking when at home and love listening to music and love watching Bollywood movies! And more importantly love a Cheeky beer or two! I don't take life too seriously and enjoy working as part of a team.

Amy Hughes

Senior Chef de Partie

Amy worked front of house at the Wharf before Andy poached her for the kitchen after she won their 1st birthday baking competition. He has subsequently poached her again for the Red Fox, with promises of gin and cider.

Christopher Jones

Senior Chef de Partie

Jonesy is a gym lover and a bit of a daredevil when it comes to rock climbing. He has followed the Wife into a B&P career, rest assured the domestics are left for after work hours!

Christopher Lynch

Chef de Partie

Chris came up trumps at the food development awards where he won best Northern main dish. An avid lover of motorbikes and Game of Thrones, Chris is a future star in the making.

Mark Cameron

Chef de Partie

"Cammers", or "Mr Heswall" is something of a legend in these parts. He's always got a smile on his face, even under a mountain of checks and is chief morale officer in the kitchen.

Samuel Kenney

Chef de Partie

Sam has been with us over a year now, he is currently completing his Chef Apprenticeship whilst working in our busy kitchen. Sam has many hobbies outside of work, one being cos play! After a shift he enjoys a pint or two or a nice glass of whiskey,



Maintenance

Simon Fotheringham

Gardener/Handyperson

Sam is the handyman of our maintenance team and rarely comes to work without being greeted with a note of something to fix, hang, glue etc. He spends his afternoons fishing the pond on our grounds with, as yet, minimal success.

Suzanne Metcalfe

Gardener/Handyperson

A great hand in our huge gardens, Sue loves to spend her time cycling to keep fit and weight training for all that heavy lifting.
