Bridge House is truly a family
business which means that we cannot always be on site especially
with our young son, Louis to contend with. Therefore, we rely heavily
on our staff to both represent us and reproduce the kind of standards
that we demand of ourselves. If ever we are not available, a duty
or senior manager is always there – day and night.
Jane Fox: Our longest serving member of staff,
Jane has been with the hotel for 17 years, almost since its inception.
Her knowledge and experience is simply incalculable. For returning
visitors, Jane will instantly recognize you no matter how long ago
Linda Paget: Linda has been with the hotel
for ten years and from the very start has had a passion for top
quality food. We are constantly making fresh demands of her as evidenced
by the award of our Second AA Rosette just six months after we took
over the Bridge House. Her number two is Jamie Fry who often runs
the kitchen alone along with Weymouth College, Catering Student
of the Year, Anthony Shaw.
Marie Purcell: It’s one of the toughest
jobs in the business and not always one of the nicest, yet one of
the most crucial areas of the hotel is housekeeping. Marie helps
to ensure we keep a clean sheet.
Siân Robinson. With a background in
retail, Siân, returned to work after having three children
as a Duty Manager at the Bridge House. She is now enhancing that
role by taking responsibility for corporate and other marketing.
There is always a Duty Manager running the hotel whether we are
there or not. It is a small, personal team but nonetheless invaluable
and comprises Sandie Conbeer, Ria Hillier as well as Siân
The Backroom Team
Bridge House employs some 25, mostly part-time
staff without whom we could achieve very little. They serve drinks,
wait restaurant tables, clean rooms and wash-up. Like every hotel
in the land, we have a complement of Polish workers who are always
a pleasure to work with.
