Name one thing about The Wild Rabbit that would take someone by surprise
Sometimes the small day to day elements are taken as a given, such as breakfast – ours is fantastic! We feature our own breads, butter and eggs from the farm. It’s worth a visit for this alone.
What is your advice for someone who is looking for their first job in hospitality?
Always face the guest, scan a room at eye level, and never let anyone approach you – go to them!
What is your top memory at The Wild Rabbit?
The summer season was fantastic – having the “Bottoms Up” bar and grill in full swing, Jerry and the team ensuring the Léoube Rose was free-flowing, and looking forward to specials based around the latest wonders from the market garden was a joy. I am happiest when we are busy.
