Chris is an experienced General Manager and has been working in the hospitality sector for over 20 years.
His passion for the industry has seen him working all over the UK - from the Isle of Skye to London (and most places in-between!). Chris has enjoyed bringing his special brand of magic to everything from five star wedding venues, cosy high-street cafes, boutique hotels and pubs and, most recently, the Flagship Fullers pub in Kings Cross Station.
Wherever and whatever the venue, Chris believes that every customer deserves an experience that is firmly centred around their enjoyment and comfort. Whether it’s a quick pint at lunchtime or a special meal with loved ones, he wants to make sure that no-one leaves his venue without first planning their next visit.
