Welcome to the Blue Anchor, Crowborough

Meet the team!

Amy – Landlady

Amy took over the Blue Anchor in spring 2018, she made improvements and changes to bring it to the successful business it is now. She brought a wealth of previous experience with her and support from her husband and family too.

She has worked in a few different pubs but wanted the chance to make her own stamp on the industry. She recently married her husband Jordan, you will regularly see him around and their very handsome dog Oban will always be there for a biscuit or begging you to throw him a ball!

Jessie – Deputy

She is a natural in the pub after having grown up in the pub industry, which lead to her having her own pub from the age of 21. She decided after 6 years that she wanted to take a back-seat and bring up her 2 children. This is when she met Amy in another local pub, and having developed a good working relationship – she came along with Amy when they opened in 2018.

Emma – Deputy

After almost 20 years in the catering business, and having moved around from Surrey to Dorset to sunny Spain, she settled in Crowborough. Having been at her previous pub for over 8 years she has now landed herself here at The Blue Anchor. It is close to home and her son’s school so was an easy choice. Having known and worked with Amy & Jordan for years it is nice to be back working together again, and still managing to stay friends!!

Izzy 

Izzy joined us when she had just finished her GCSE’s and needed to keep busy during summer – and never really left! She kept coming back for shifts in between school and rehearsals. Now while away at Drama school, she is missing the sound of the food bell!

Phoebe 

After having spent time with her family here at The Blue Anchor before working here, she soon realised she would quite like to become part of the team. She always enjoyed the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff when being a customer, and luckily still does now!

Richard 

Richard only joined our family recently in August, having experienced the great service at The Blue Anchor as a paying customer and couldn’t wait to work the other side of the bar! He primarily works for the airlines, however when his feet are on the ground and he is not flying the world at 35,000 feet, he will be here behind our bar or serving you at the table with a smile!

Isobel

She started working with us in April 2021 and has very much enjoyed working with the rest of the team. She is currently studying at 6th form and is looking forward to starting an apprenticeship next year.

Matilda

She is currently an A Level student studying Digital Media and Art at 6th Form, and has enjoyed working part time with us since December 2020. She is looking forward to going to university next year, whilst coming back over the weekends and holidays to work with the rest of the team.

Erin

Erin is also an A Level student studying geography, psychology and biology. She is relatively new to the team but already enjoys the fun and friendly environment.

Ana

Having worked at The Blue Anchor five years ago, Ana re-joined the team last summer while on break from studying at the University of Leeds. Ana has now graduated and has since become part of the furniture here at The Blue Anchor. When she’s not at work, you can find Ana propped up on the other side of the bar with two of our old family members… 

Rachel - A combination of Monica (from Friends) and a dash of happy-go-lucky attitude! Exploring, seeing new places, having fun with friends and family, and indulging in lots of yummy food are a few of her favourite things!

Back of House

Will – Sous Chef

Amy has worked with Will for years in past pubs, watching him progress from KP to Apprentice and since lockdown he has become our new Sous Chef. His passion for cooking and his commitment to learn is only outshined by his endless optimism and infectious sense of humour.

Will

He doesn’t like to brag, but he has worked here since before Amy came along. He has been the KP that held the pub up since 2018. He is in his last year at 6th form and loves being part of such an amazing team in his part time job.

Dillon

My name is Dillon. I’m an A level student and kitchen porter at the Blue Anchor. In my spare time I play the guitar (which I enjoy almost as much as I do washing up!)
