Name:  Gareth Jones

Job Title: Food and Beverage Manager

How long have you worked at Waterside? I have worked with the waterside for 2 years now.

What are you most looking forward to about the refurbishment of the bar?

I am looking forward to welcoming our regular clients and being able to show off the new surroundings which will benefit everybody.

What is your favourite beer on offer at Waterside? The Guinness is really good quality, a great pint!

If you were a cocktail, what sort of cocktail would you be?

As I am from down south – Apples and Pears!

About Apples And Pears

The apple, eaten by man for at least 2,000 years, is a mystical object, a symbol for love, sexuality and knowledge (that’s me!). Perhaps that’s why it makes such a sexy, subtle, clever ingredient at the bar. Combine apple with its less famous cousin, the pear, and true love arises. 



Served in champagne glass.

When you’re not busy working at Waterside, what do you enjoy doing?

I like spending time with my partner trying out new bars and eateries. I also really enjoy the outdoors, it clears my mind.

What are you most looking forward to in 2017?

Being part of the new Waterside and providing a great product for all of our guests.

And seeing the ‘LIONS’ at the top of league 1, of course!

Our Hotel Near Manchester just would not run as smoothly without our amazing team, and we’d like you to get to know them. Come and visit us today and we will be happy to show you around.
