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.

Patrick WebsdellManager
Patrick joined the Anchor Team in April 2015 and with eighteen years experience in the hospitality business and a passion for real ale and food, is a great addition to the Anchor Team. Having worked predominantly in the East End of London, Patrick is returning to his Suffolk roots and was blown away when he first saw the beautiful setting of the Anchor.

Patrick’s passion is customer satisfaction, working hard to ensure every guest enjoys their visit to the Anchor whether it is for a pint, family meal or formal function.

When he is not at the Anchor, Patrick likes to relax and play football with friends. He is an accomplished dancer and despite his success in the hospitality industry, his mother is most proud of his prize-winning performance in an Irish dancing competition at age 19.
