About the Bartender
Lisa has been with the Beannchor Group from the beginning of her career in hospitality, starting out as a waitress at the Tatu Bar & Grill 13 years ago. She then had the opportunity to join the opening team at The Merchant as assistant marketing manager. There, Lisa underwent a management training course in which she moved around each area of the hotel, before settling in The Cloth Ear as general manager four years ago. “Every day is different,” says Lisa, “and it’s nice to be part of creating people’s special memories. We’re very lucky in that we’ve really seen tourism growing over the last 10 years. It’s great to see the growth and development within the Cathedral Quarter, and obviously the hospitality industry as a whole.”
