Meet the Team

At The Restaurant and Bar its not just about the delicious food, it’s also about a relaxed, professional service that adds to your overall enjoyment.

We believe creating this environment starts with the right people – and we’d like you to meet some of the team at The Restaurant and Bar, Bristol.

James Tony O’Neill, Restaurant Manager

Mike Riordan, Head Chef

Having worked for the company for 20 odd years, it’s probably fair to say that Mike has seen and done it all! He began his career with Shire Hotels when he was working at North Lakes Hotel & Spa before relocating down South in 2002. He recalls “I went to cosmopolitan Bristol, where I was as much a foreigner with my northern accent as the foreign nationals working in the hotel’. Mike is part of the furniture now though and has a great presence within the hotel. When not in the kitchen, he spends one day a week teaching at the local college, lining up the next generation of Shire chefs.
