Jamie, at the front of house, is a local boy who has been in the booze trade all his life. With a scary knowledge of just about everything, he'll remember your name, what you like to drink and where you like to sit, natural crowd pleaser, with Mr. Darcy style charm and can drink most locals under the table. With Jamie, you have the girls, Liz is wifey, camper van lover, marathon runner and fabulous mummy to the twins, Ellie and Alice the 7 year old resident princesses, you will very quickly become acquainted as they twirl around the pub.
Darren is our executive chef, with an unquenchable desire to produce high quality home cooked food - always fresh, always fantastic. There is nothing ordinary about anything Darren concocts in the kitchen, his eye for detail and creative skills allow him to manipulate the traditional food we love and transform them into one of a kind creations.
Kevin is our Head Chef, originally a St. Albans boy he has spent the last 35 years cheffing practically everywhere, Geronimo in London, Browns, Gaucho and under such names as Lee Milne. He recently left Ibiza Rocks, Pikes Hotel to join us at The Gate.
Kevin is by nature, one of those eccentric guys in life that refuse to grow old, spending his days raving it up at old school house parties and indulging in his passion for food. He’s definitely a cool chef to work with!
Zoë Traynor has worked with Jamie since the beginning of his pub adventure in 2013, swapping from manager of their sister pub the Rose & Crown in Sandridge, to working behind the scenes as Head of Digital, and Marketing & PR Manager.
Very occasionally you may see her on site, hanging out with the team, taking photographs of pub grub or updating the chalkboards.
