Charlie Lear

Bar assistant


This is my first job and I love it. I love working with the Bar team and especially love learning how to make cocktails I am to young to drink them but I am perfecting my technique at home for my mum. I especially enjoy the flair part of it and I am practicing some tricks.

My favourite drink is Fanta and I did make an amazing Mocktail with Ed at our training we called it the Samurai Sunrise. My favourite song at the moment is Run through the Jungle by the Creedance Clearwater Revival its old school.
