Katy WS

Katy Hulstone – Manager

Katy has been at the Elephant since 2004. Her calm, casual approach has brought a new level of service to the restaurant. Mother of the three little herbs, Tansy, Cicely and Betony and married to the chef. What a lucky lady!

Front of House

Bronwen WS


A great waitress and hard working; she’s also a drama queen.  Quiet and shy but gets the job done.



Canadian Jasmine is our doe eyed waitress.  Training to be a lumberjack so that she can return to the wilds and live with the mooses.



Our cocktail barman who is so good they named him twice.  Quiet but strong he crushes the ice just by staring at it.



The highest pitched waitress we have ever employed.  The chefs wear earplugs and local dogs howl when she talks.

The Kitchen

Craig WS


Welsh boy Craig (also known as Beaker) is the energetic Head Chef at The Elephant. He enjoys running half marathons and has competed twice in the National Chef of The Year. He also has a tendency to walk into things.



‘Mr Bean’ as he is known, George is our cockney geezer.  He’s absolutely sorted and a total diamond.  Cor blimey Guv’nor.

Tansy WS


Tansy is our eldest ‘herb’ and is clear where she wants to be in the future.  When asked if she wants to be a chef like Daddy she replied “No I want to be a customer.”  Clever girl!

Cicely 5


Cicely is our budding Heston Blumenthal.  She loves foraging with Daddy and can tell you which wild mushrooms you can or can’t eat.  One to watch for the future!

Betony WS


The youngest but most demanding of the 3 daughters, she knows where the pastry section is and, more importantly, which chef to charm for chocolates.
