Meet the Team

Meet the




At The Springhead you can expect a warm, friendly welcome from our team.  Landlady Joanne took over the pub in November 2012, joining her family who already live in the village. Joanne’s very approachable, professional manner makes her the perfect landlady.

Manager, Grant has a wealth of experience in the Pub & Restaurant trade and has well established himself as part of the furniture here at The Springhead.  If you have any questions about up coming events or the local area then this guy can keep you informed.  He helps maintain a ‘family’ feel to the team and is always happy to help.


Our waiting & bar team of Molly (Assistant Restaurant Manager), Jack (Bar supervisor),  Becca, Haydon, Little Callum, & Evie are always striving to push their high standards and they will do their up most to make your experience as delightful as our surroundings. Their friendly competition of who gets the most good comments in the anonymous comments box each month means they are always on top of their game, so next time you eat with us please do take the time to complete a comment card and help decide who will be number 1.

The Bar team is overseen by Manager Grant & the waiting team is overseen by Restaurant Manager Geno.  We also have senior supervisor Katie Raven who handles our functions.  She is highly personable and if you have a function or party you would like to discuss….look no further.

Restaurant Manager Geno hails from near Malaga, Spain and this job has been her life, she lives and breathes hospitality and we are proud to have her on board.

The kitchen is overseen by Executive Head Chef Charlie whose passion for local Dorset produce is showcased in his range of homemade dishes & daily specials.  He has taken The Springhead’s food to its greatest level yet and improved every dish The Springhead served alongside stamping his own specials and style on our food.  He is supported by Head Chef Seb Blundell, Sous Chef Giuseppe & our long standing, practically furniture…  Matty & Ady.  A great team who’s passion is to be the best.

Pub dogs Scrumpy! & Ziggy! – The Springhead wouldn’t be the same without our head of security, the lively Scrumpy.  The very excitable little white dog can often be seen running around the gardens with the children or taking a nap by our warm fire.  She loves to meet new people and new dogs alike.  Ziggy is our new baby boy, hes now growing rather big but will mature into a cracking pub dog.  Besotted with Scrumpy he follows her everywhere and is unfortunately easily led astray by her antics too!
