Meet the Team!
Employee of the Month
December is always a difficult but fantastic month to work in the pub industry, extremely busy and stressful for some and just a month of partying for others.
With the constant Christmas parties flowing our chefs get put under immense pressure to make sure all meals are delivered perfectly and Darius made sure he provided to the best of his ability.
Working overtime and coming up with a fantastic Christmas Day menu he made sure that the food was fast and served to a fantastic standard.
The Boss, The man who runs the show and keeps everyone in line. Now into his 15th year running The Billy, he has so much love for the village and everyone in it, almost as much as he loves his fosters.
The actual boss, with so much experience running pubs and entertaining customers Kate works quietly in the background to the public but makes sure everything is perfect for the customers and makes sure Mark is making the right decisions. She also does a fantastic job as our wine and prosecco taster, just to make sure they are all tasting perfect for the customers to enjoy.
The latest Supervisor in the team, working the bar as well as creating the new website, updating our media pages and always thinking of new ideas and events to plan. Keep the more youthful customers happy and helps any party get started over the weekends
The foundation of the pub, it would be like a plane without a pilot if Lex wasn’t around. Known to all the customers Horsley runs through Lex’s blood and she loves every customer as if they were family to her. There is a reason that our Wi-Fi password is lexyisthebest.
Our head chef, the man behind the menu, brought such great ideas and inspiration to
the Billy with new adventurous dishes and specials that get put on throughout the week. Fits perfectly in our new team and work extra hours to make sure that the food you are getting is to the very best standard.
Tomek’s partner in crime, Darius adds a fantastic work ethic and some amazing creativity
with his meals. They work together perfectly in the kitchen and have both become part of the Billy team very quickly.
Every pub has to have a crazy one, we know that Tamsin is our one. Very chatty, very funny and very friendly, Tamsin will go out of her way to make sure your experience here is the best you have ever had. You will see her or hear her coming from a mile away as she will probably be dancing or singing along to the music.
The youngster of the group, but she will still ensure you have a wonderful time.
Chatty, bubbly and confident Thalia has learnt the role very quickly after following her sister’s footsteps working here.
Our Saturday night specialist, Orianne has gone from a very shy girl to a fantastic member of staff and knows the perfect way to make your time with us as memorable as possible. She even knows what sauces go with what dish now!
Elyshia is one of our more experienced staff members, working on and off now for over 3 years. She has just recently got back from travelling around south east Asia. Always happy and will always be around to make sure you have a fantastic experience here. If she isn’t working im sure you will see her with a large glass of wine in her hand and starting the party in the pub.
Just like Thalia, Charlotte has joined the team after her older sibling Jack. A brilliant worker who is saving up to travel across South America next year. You will see her working as many shifts as she can and always smiling. (That’s if she isn’t asking the chef’s for a bowl of chips in the kitchen)
Our Friday night and Sunday day trouper, you will find Kate working during our busiest times and helping ‘Billy No Mates’ on our monthly quiz night. Also our very own artist, any of the signs and sketches you see around the pub will most likely be because of Kate.
Learning all the aspects of the pub, Laura can now be seen behind the bar as well as in the restaurant working away to make your experience here as special as possible.
Our very own Billy Idol you’ll spot him from a mile away and soon hear him on the radio, one of our newer younger members but has taken to the job brilliantly. Working brilliantly on Saturdays and loves to help out on our private events to help out to provide a quality service.
Another younger member of staff, Charlotte is learning the role very well, working her Friday night shift to make sure that everyone’s weekend gets of to a great start. Shy outside of work but comes alive when she gets to work.
