Meet the team

Since opening in 2016 Marcus and Loredana Emadi have built a team that has become more like a family. We’re a rag tag bunch of fun loving, hard working eccentrics with big personalities all committed to make sure you have a great time in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

Sure, sometimes we’ll bicker over playlists, emptying the bin or who is going to clean the glasswasher, but you couldn’t meet a more supportive group.

Check out the team bios below so you can get to know us a little before your visit.
