Meet the team

Head Chef
Pramod has been Head Chef since 2019, having worked for us for several years as Sous Chef. Originally from India, near Mumbai, Pramod (nicknamed Rambo amongst the team) has developed an amazing repertoire of British and international dishes. But of course he is renowned (if not type-cast) for his incredible vegan curries.

Oli Bichener

Oli Bichener

Service Manager
Oli joined the OB team in 2019 after previously running The Cock in Hemingford Grey. Oliver maintains that he doesn’t have ‘hobbies’ because he lives and breathes hospitality. Restaurants, bars, food & drink - that’s his thing.

CYRIL BRAY

Cyril Bray

Functions Manager
Cyril has been with us (off and on!) for 10 years. He has managed the restaurant in the past but is now in charge of all our functions, whether a small private dinner or a large wedding. He adds a classic sense of French hospitality to Huntingdon.
Seen here with our Breakfast Manager, Jan Howson.

John Hoskins

John Hoskins

Proprietor
John's family ran 'Poste Hotels' in the area for many years. John became a 'Master of Wine' in 1994 – the same year he set up his own company Huntsbridge and bought the hotel. His office is at the back of the wine shop, so you might just catch him there.

Julia Hoskins

Julia Hoskins

Design
Julia, John's wife, oversees design, refurbishment and (less glamorous but never ending) maintenance. 18th century buildings demand a lot of TLC.
