Shane has worked in hospitality since the ripe old age of 16 years old and has worked alongside our very own Chef Director during the beginnings of his career at the Swan in Salford.

Shane and his brother, Aaron, also organise pop-up restaurant dinner parties. Outside of work Shane maintains his passion for food and drink as he enjoys dining out, good wines, foraging ingredients and even boasts green fingers looking after his very own orchard! When he finally downs the cooking utensils he can be found snowboarding and spending time with his son, Teddy and dog, Buddy.
