Business Director

Family man, keen golfer (when possible), adventurous traveller, all round tidy person – everyone knows that!


Shelf stacker, waiter, barman; all in the early days… A (working) lifetime in contract catering. I’m a sales guy at heart.

Personal ambition

To be healthy and happy. Would be helped by a fine wine collection and England winning a major final!?!


North-western corner of the Peak District; fabulous in summer, not so clever in winter.

Guilty pleasure

Fab meal, great wine and company.

Worst dish ever

Fois gras in its many guises

Best dish ever

Mum’s roast beef Sunday dinner


Loved Orlando with my kids, truly magical. Always somewhere hot and sunny.


Sir Alex Ferguson and Bono. Actually, Seve Ballesteros – a remarkable player.


Limited; I proved at an early age I wasn’t great at looking after pets.
