He said: “I’ve loved every moment since starting at the Chantry. It’s been such an amazing opportunity for me personally and I’ve really had the chance to spread my wings.

"The team and I have worked hard since I started to perfect the pub’s offer and our service and it’s really reflected in the amount of positive feedback that’s now coming in from customers.”

He added: “Cancerwise is an important charity to Chichester, so it was a no brainer when I picked it.”
