Mark Cribb
Owner, future gazer

10 years ago Fee and I first opened the doors to the Urban Beach Hotel. I now spend most of my time in the future looking for new exciting things to give some Urban Guild love to.

Chris Warwick
Head of Operations, connoisseur, dapper chap

I keep Mark’s FUTURE aspirations loosely in some sort of real world, I work in the NOW, zipping between venues, making sure every day we HUG 100s of people. Then I have a whisky.

Russell Watson
General Manager

I recently joined the Urban Guild having managed other local venues and I am looking forward to getting to know you all.

Jonny Cooper
Duty Manager, handy

Mr. Fix It, handy man and mender of broken things. I started work at Urban Reef before making the move to Jenkins & Sons as Duty Manager.

Ian Gibbs
Group Exec Chef

I love local, seasonal produce. I work closely with our passionate suppliers to craft the finest dishes for you to enjoy at Urban Reef and all the Guild venues.

Ryan Colbert
Beer boffin

I am passionate about craft beer and work with our suppliers to get new interesting brews into Jenkins & Sons for you to try before they go mainstream. I have just started brewing my own beer too.

Kay Tanner
Baker, runner, dawn treader

I get to work as the sun peeks its head above the horizon. Naomi and I are busy baking lovely muffins, flapjacks, cakes, granola, brownies, gluten free bread, gingerbread people while most people are still snoring.

Louanna Lane
Duty Manager, Training Buddy

As a Duty Manager I look after the team during service and I also make sure new recruits are trained, developed and mentored into hospitality heroes.

Matt Cook
Head Chef

I enjoy developing kitchens & menus, and trying new dishes out. I love using local seafood and still think its some of the best in the world.

Matt Lawrence
Head of shouting

I came to Bournemouth to study marketing, met my wife Vicky at Uni and set up home here 20 years ago. I love my job, promoting the Urban venues and dressing up like a wally.

Jasper
Hugable, wagging, friend

Meet Jasper, we think he’s the duck’s nuts. If you meet him at one of our establishments be sure to say hello. He’s also known for giving great hugs – well OK, great licks.
