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

David Green


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-Hughes

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.

Laura Gaynor

Deputy 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.

Rebecca Simmons

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.

Kyle Crone

Assistant Manager

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.

Elisha Owen

Trainee Assistant Manager

Ever- smiling Elisha is one of our longest serving members of the team, having been with us since just after we opened, so what she doesn't know about the Red Fox or our customers just isn't worth knowing. She's infamous for her partying stamina and love of a night out... except now she's growing up she has to book another week off to recover afterwards. Her taste in wine is much improving as she gets older too and is fond of a Sancerre... if her boyfriend is paying that is!

Mike "Madog" Angus


Mike has so many nicknames we can't possibly fit them all here... so we'll settle for one... "Madog". Outside of work, "Madog" is a ring accouncer for semi professional wrestling, so has quite the boomy voice; if you need a quizmaster for a pub quiz or Master of Ceremonies for a special occasion, "Madog" is your man! "Madog" is quite the family man aside from this and spends the rest of his free time zipping around the country on holiday with his young son.

Diane Allen

Bar/Waiting Staff

"Lady Di" joined us soon after retiring from one of our suppliers. She decided that if she was going to be in the pub so much she may as well get paid for it. She takes great care of her customers and when she gets any spare time off she'll be with her dog Oscar or cruising the Caribbean with her husband Mike.


Andrew Warters

Head Chef

Andy heads up the chef team, having worked for B&P for a very impressive 20 years. Having led the Corn Mill, Fox and Wharf kitchens for several years, he is used to what we like to call 'extreme catering'. After the somewhat intimate arrangements at some of his former kitchens, the 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 or cheering on his beloved Leeds United at Elland Road.

Philip Riden

Head 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....

Matthew Owen

Sous Chef

Matt joined us as a fresh faced 17 year old and has slotted into chef life like a dream. He's great at coming up with new dishes and when he's not cooking at work or home he'll be in the gym or between the sticks for Red Fox FC.

Christopher Jones

Sous Chef

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!

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.

Christopher Lynch

Senior 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.
