Deputy Manager, Anne Harrigan
Before joining the Waterfront Anne worked as Pub & Restaurant Manager in a quintessential Buckinghamshire village. Although in a successful role there, Anne’s heart belonged in the Midlands. Before being offered the role of Deputy Manager at the Waterfront Anne often frequented the bar and restaurant, enjoying the fine wine and good food, so you can imagine how delighted she was to become part of the team. Anne loves the happy environment at the Waterfront, and the way the pub’s always evolving & taking up fresh ideas. The staff are great too!
Outside work Anne enjoys her time with family & friends as week as long walks with her rescued Border Collie dog Aoife.

“When helping to plan a wedding, it’s important to build up a relationship with the couple. They trust you with the most important day of their lives, and each wedding is unique and different. There is always pressure when you are planning such an important event, but also a buzz when you help to make it what they want.”
Away from work, Laura loves travelling, eating out and cooking.
