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

Alisha C


Originally from Toronto, Canada, Alisha has travelled around a bit - after studying law enforcement she decided to up sticks and move half way around the world to Shanghai where she opened a pub with her friend. After almost five years decided to give England a try. Alisha immediately fell in love with pubs and ale, never to turn back. She has been working for B&P for over 7 years, running the Mute Swan and Old Orchard before her move to the Telegraph. She loves cooking, play football and a cheeky glass of Whiskey. When she's not at the pub you will see her out for a run with her dog Ned!

Izzy H

Deputy Manager

Our resident gin enthusiast, Izzy has worked for B&P since the beginning of her career, starting off as a fresh-faced runner. She has worked her way through the ranks and with all of her hard work she has progressed phenomenally. Her speed, efficiency and buoyant personality make her a joy to work with. When Izzy isn't working you will find her in the kitchen baking or out for long walks with her beautiful pooch.

Callum C

Deputy Manager

One of our Deputy Mangers, Callum has expertise with our Brunning and Price pubs, after transferring from the Mute Swan, situated opposite Hampton Court Palace, (if you are in the area why not stop by!).  A handy man who is usually tinkering away fixing things in his spare time, be that his car or the odd job around the pub. Callum puts in the effort to ensure you have the best experience with us.

Lewis F

Assistant Manager

Lewis is our vegetarian champion, who can’t wait to ‘meat’ you. An Everton fan, he loves a chat about football and how often his team looses. A friendly guy who is always happy to help in any situation.

David W

Assistant Manager

Winchester born, David has recently come back to working in pubs and is so glad he did. With a background in fashion that has taken him around the world, he usually has a story to tell with a smile. An avid reader, he likes to spend his spare time working through a stack of books.

Alex G

Bar/Waiting Staff

A star food runner, Alex will get your food orders to you as soon as they are ready to go and happy to help with any other requests you may have. When he isn't here Alex enjoys playing sports and creating music videos. Is fame in his future? You'll have to see.

Bri J

Bar/Waiting Staff

Bri is one of our brilliant front of house team, professional, quick and knowledgeable. In her spare time Bri enjoys keeping active, with a big focus on her studies.


Lee A

Head Chef

Lee is normally a very quiet member of the crew, although we suspect that on the quiet he is a bit of a lad. He has been with us since 2000, when he started as a Kitchen Porter, but he has since taken The Kitchen Plunge. He is known as "Bus", but no-one will say why, so assume it's rude.

Marius C

Senior Sous Chef

Marius hails from Romania, via Mitcham and is one of our shining young stars in the kitchen. Starting life as a kitchen porter when the Mute Swan (our sister pub) opened its doors back in 2014, Marius now helps to lead the mains section of the kitchen from the pass on busy shifts. He is an extremely determined and talented young man, with a great passion for food (as well as business and football). Marius recently won the Food Development Award in the 'Final of Finals' alongside Izzy, for their Korean chicken wings dish. There are vicious rumours amongst the crew that Marius is also a very good footballer, however these are yet to be confirmed by his appearance at staff football games!
