The brains, and beauty?, behind the operation. Alyn spends most his time coming up with amazing dishes for the menu, looking for inspiration everywhere he goes. He's been in the industry since he was 16. His favourite restaurant, however, is Nandos.
Meet The Bear Team
Please find listed below the key members of the Bear at Hodnet team.
Our resident Landlord, Greg, spends most his days playing golf or challenging 'mini Barnesy' for games of tennis. The rest of his time he spends quaffing wine, all in the name of research for our wine list, of course. Most likely to be found wearing brightly coloured trousers and trying to look busy with our 'ferocious guard dog' Jack, at his heels.
The Jack of all trades; the painter, the builder, the shelf 'putter-upper'. The guy we turn to when we want something "yes Chris, we definately need a Crystal wine decanter" (Greg), "slate plates really add to the dish" (Alyn). When he's not running around after us he's running about after his four children.....
Al's right-hand man. A master of steaks and BBQ's. In his spare time, Chris is a secret mechanic. So girls, you're onto a winner, he can cook you dinner then fix your car.
The one that looks after us all and keeps Greg in-check. Sharon was here before all of us so is a fountain of all knowledge for The Bear, particularly useful in discovering the use of specific keys. Big fan of Gangnam Style.
