Our Assistant Bar Manager, Alice, tells us which Game of Thrones character she’d like round for dinner and much more in this staff profile.
S: What is your role here at the Swan?
A: I look after the bar, it’s an all day job as we can start at 7am and dependant what’s going on at the Globe, we can be here until 3 or 4 in the morning. I look after the bar service and make sure all our guests are happy, guide the staff and sort out any problems that may arise along the way.
S: What is it you love about the working here at the Swan?
A: Even though there are so many of us, we are one big team. Everyone really gets on and it is like one big family.
S: Where was the last place you ate out?
A: I recently went to Flesh and Buns, a Japanese style restaurant that is really funky, really loud and has a really good atmosphere. Their cocktails are great and it’s not just Sushi, it does really good meat and some amazing Japanese style buns.
S: What’s your favourite dish to cook at home?
A: I make a tasty bolognaise. It’s all about the good homely food plus it’s nice and quick & easy.
S: What’s your secret hangover cure?
A: Bed, every time. Anyone that knows me will know I don’t recover well with a hangover, I need 24hrs minimum with lots of water and paracetamol!
S: Who would be your ideal dinner party guest?
A: Kit Harrington from Game of Thrones *sighs*… No explanation necessary.
