Meet The Team

Meet Sam & Rachael, the Lord and Lady of the Mill. Rachael is all things people and culture, with plenty of hospitality experience under her belt. Sam worked his way from cloakroom attendant to General Manager. Together with beaming smiles and with service in their soul, they bring you their latest adventure, The Mill at Rode. 


General Manager - From her native South Africa, Kayla has hospitality running through her veins, with international experience and local knowledge, Kayla is always ready to serve with a smile. 


Head Chef Lee is a force to be reckoned with. His years of experience at high end restaurants across the UK, and easy go lucky personality, is quite literally served to you on your plate! 


Sous Chef Molly's head down attitude makes her the perfect part of The Mill brigade, bringing you tasty puddings and plenty of laughs throughout service! 


Commis Chef Bernie is both a local and an essential part of our kitchen brigade, usual enjoying a pint of Estrella at the bar on his days off, or zooming in on his bike to lend a helping hand in all corners of the kitchen.


Assistant Manager - Catherine's out going personality, and infectious laugh makes her the ideal welcoming face at The Mill, not to mention her delicious cocktails and eye for detail. 


Undercover boss - When Kevin isn't busy wooing the ladies, he's hard at work as an all round kitchen assistant, painter decorator, and full time staff entertainer. 


Head of food quality control, and hygiene standards. Mooncake is always overly hospitable, and makes the rest of the staff wonder if its okay to lick our customers too? If she's not snoozing in the office she's usually following Kayla around. 


Our head waiter Marley is both a doting employee and a loving father! His laid back and charismatic personality will set you up for a relaxing evening, while he's always keeping an eye on making sure the floor is running in tip top shape!
