Front of House Manager
Ellie is our front of house manager at The Rising Sun and runs a team of eight making sure every customer gets the best possible service.
For customer service is the be all and end all for Ellie, who says: “From our first smile when customers enter the pub to when we say goodbye and thank you we want everything to the best it can possibly be for them.
“The team gets on like a little family so it’s nice to come to work. I think people are now seeing The Rising Sun more as a gastro pub and its reputation under our owners Michelle and Paul is really beginning to spread with people regularly travelling here from Taunton and Minehead.”
Ellie’s well-known locally for her horse, the wonderfully named Clever Trevor. When she’s not working at the pub she’s looking after him from first thing in the morning to last thing at night. riding him in Eventing and Dressage events.
“Trev seems to think he’s a big dog,” says Ellie. “He’s very chilled and can adapt to any situation.”
In fact, he’s even been known to drop in at The Rising Sun for a cheeky pint.
