Meet The team

Our story began with Jim & Sharon, so we'd best start there..

jim sharon

JIM: Co-founder. For many years the chef patron - now Jim is our resident handyman, errand-runner, breakfast chef and guru. He's fairly recently a grandad, and he enjoys walking in the mountains, skiing and watching Peterborough United. Jim has forty years experience in the kitchen, and twenty three in business.

SHARON: Co-founder. Sharon was new to hospitality when she started out with Jim. Since then she's been the face of the business, it's administrator, housekeeper and everything in between - nowadays her role is mostly in guest relations. Sharon enjoys a good novel and spending time with her granddaughter.

BEN: Head chef. Ben's been at the pass since we opened the door here in 2014. His favourite produce to work with is local game. Ben has a little boy, Ralph, whom he enjoys taking to watch Leicester City. He has twenty years experience in the kitchen.

PHIL: Sous chef. Twenty-six years experience under his belt, and eight of those at the Six Bells. His favourite thing to cook is day-boat-caught fish. Phil has a daughter Lily and a son Finlay. When not in the kitchen he enjoys fishing, fishing & more fishing.

NATHAN: Junior sous chef. Nathan has been cooking professionally for eight years and has been a part of our squad since June 2019. The section he loves most is the pizza-kitchen. Nath has a daughter called Mayah, and in his downtime he enjoys watching Leeds United.


RYAN: Restaurant Manager. Ryan started in the industry nine years ago, and has ascended from the pot-wash to GM. He joined our team in early 2024, bringing experience and energy. Ryan is active and enjoys football, running and golf. He also lends his management expertise to our six-a-side team, Auberge FC.

MONTSERRAT: Restaurant supervisor. Montse is our Catalonian galactico. She's been a member of the team for an impressive fifteen years. Montse enjoys spinning class, and visiting friends and family in her hometown Barcelona.

ALEX: Assistant Restaurant Manager. Alex has been a member of our team since August 2021 and he's recently completed a level-three apprenticeship in hospitality management - with distinction. On his days off, Alex enjoys chilling with his mates & spending time with his gran.

RACHEL: Restaurant supervisor. Rachel has been a part of the Six Bells squad since 2019. Rachel enjoys the garden, as well as spending time with sons Joe & George. She can take most of the credit for the Six Bells always looking fresh - and in the summer months, Rach is our dead-header in chief.

LAUREN: Co-owner. Lauren was raised in the business and has twenty years experience in hospitality. Under her tenure, the Beehive quickly became a Peterborough institution and remained so for a decade. These days Lauren makes the place tick behind the scenes, and picks up any slack on the restaurant floor. She enjoys the theatre & spending time with daughter Bonnie.

JAMES: Co-owner. Like Lauren, I was raised in the business and have worked in it since I was a teenager. I spent five years in the American midwest including a spell at Chicago's Alinea group. I enjoy hiking, and going to the football with Jim. I can be found on the restaurant floor, or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
