My name is Paul Busby. I know quite a few already know me, my family or remember me from my time at Reubens in Whitchurch or The Swan in Tarporley.
For those who don't - I am 34 years old, and have been doing this type of work since I turned 18. I love hospitality, meeting new people and probably have spent the same amount of time on both sides of the bar!
I also became a father on May 3rd 2021 for the first time. Honestly you really do not appreciate parenthood until you experience it yourself. It is something I wouldn't change for the world.
I am always happy to chat to everyone. The locals just need to give me time to get used to names!
Andy has a wealth of experience in some of the best pub eateries in the county including The Horse and Jockey and The Lord Combermere. He is married and is a big fan of fishing, beer, One Direction and very, very mild curries. The nifty coat he is sporting is the direct result of a bizarre mating ritual between the Michelin man and a smurf.
James Rickerby is a local guy. Started his career in the restaurant & bar at Hawkstone Park Hotel. The old manager of the Bull, Mike, saw his potential and employed him as his assistant. Thankfully James has stayed on to help Paul find his way around. Most of the time he is feeling worst for wear but if you speak to him, he doesn't really drink! REALLY??!!
Other Bulls and Dogs........
Jack, Becki, Niamh, Daisy, Chloe, Mason, Tom, Jane, Evie, Caoimhe and Charlotte although none actually look that much like bulls or dogs. Much.
