Meet the Team

Bart Bisbal – Operations Manager

Bart is our energetic Operations Manager and has the arduous task of ensuring both sites, The Angel and The Anchor Inn, run smoothly on a day-to-day basis and that staff and customers leave happy. No two days are the same for Bart but he likes to be kept on his toes, he says it keeps him young!
Bart grew up in a fishing village in Palma and dreamt of a simple life on the boats fishing in the sunshine but after a few stints heading up kitchens here in the UK and managing a number of hotel chains he joined the team at The Angel, even though he thonught the initial job offer was a joke.
He is very modest in his work and prides himself on the ability to pester others, but in reality he works like a trooper and is on call 24 hours a day.
When he does get some much deserved time off, Bart loves to spend it with his family and loves good food, especially when it’s accompanied by fine wine. If he can get away for a few days he loves whisking his wife down to The Sail Lofts in St Ives (another of our businesses) for some rest and relaxation.

Ed CampbellHead Chef

Ed Campbell has recently joined the Anchor as Head Chef coming full circle for him as it was here that he took his first job as Commis Chef when he was 16. After studying at the Colchester Institute he left Nayland to work in Galvin’s kitchen in Baker’s Street, London. He brings a fresh new approach to his menus using plenty of fresh local produce to create some delicious dishes. We also have our very own smokery on site here at the Anchor and therefore Ed has created a selection of smoked dishes to add to our extensive a la carte, our Anchor classics menu and as we always welcome the little ones here do try Ed’s Little Sailor Menu too.
