Mikey Slade, General Manager

"I started at the Red Lion in 2008 where I was employed as a food runner. Having worked my way up in that site learning all aspects of the bar and waiting on tables, I was offered the position of assistant manager in the 2nd site, The Three Horseshoes. Having moved around quite a few sites I now find myself 9 years later in my second General managers position back at the Red Lion where it all began! "

Frances Fox, Assistant Manager

"I started off at The Onslow Arms about six years ago with little waitress experience, however they took me under their wing with a good training plan and pairing me with experienced waiters until I was ready to work on my own section. Realising I really enjoyed the job I decided to progress into management. Pearmain pubs introduced a ‘PAMOF’ scheme (potential assistant managers of the future) I showed my interest and quickly excelled in the scheme becoming an assistant manager of The Onslow Arms in one quick year. Today I am working as a manager at The Wheatsheaf in Esher."
