Brewhouse & Kitchen has grown its team with the appointment of a new general manager.
David Griffiss, 38, is originally from Burton-on-Trent and will return to his Midlands roots to lead the Nottingham team, having previously managed the company’s Southampton venue for two years.
Before joining Brewhouse & Kitchen, David worked at sea for nine years on the RMS QM2 and QE2 as bar waiter and then assistant bar manager.
David said: “I’m looking forward to getting stuck in to my new role with the Nottingham team and bringing the experience and knowledge I have accumulated from the Southampton site with me.
“The team is already doing a brilliant job in Nottingham and I’m excited to help boost their success further. Brewhouse & Kitchen is all about customer experience, so that will be my main focus for the team.”
With 42 staff, the Nottingham team is one of Brewhouse & Kitchen’s largest across its 17 regional sites.
Simon Bunn, managing director, said: “We’re thrilled to have David join the Nottingham team. As general manager in Southampton, David did an exceptional job of leading the team and ensuring the success of the venue.
“Our Nottingham site has seen fantastic success since it opened this year – business is booming. We’re confident that under David’s leadership the team and the venue will continue to go from strength to strength.”
Every Brewhouse & Kitchen site offers over 50 different craft beers and an interesting selection of ciders from breweries around the world, as well as a playful selection of ‘beertails’, wines and spirits, expertly paired with dishes from their menus.
Brewhouse & Kitchen is one of the UK’s fastest growing companies with annual turnover expected to exceed £18 million this year.
