THE 3 OF US

Paul Bennett

Partner

Paul has been a publican for the last 100 years and looks surprisingly good on it. He's run successful pubs in Islington, The City, Brighton and Lewes, trendy hipster joints, city watering holes, student party pubs and family food venues. He loves 6music, festivals, cricket and red wine, partner Leah and son Ozzy.

Rob Palmer

Partner/Head Chef

Rob has been a chef since he was 16, which is a very long time ago, and a head chef for nearly 20 years. He's won awards and plaudits all around the country and never fails to conjure up new and exciting dishes. Rob's loves are his cat Darwin, sci-fi and gin - lots of gin - partner Lucy and sons Felix and Dexter.

Damien Basegmezer

Partner

Damo is a mechanic and engineer and is happiest when he's covered in oil and knee deep in spare parts. He makes sure our 2 bar babies stay on the road as well as working at most of our events behind the bar or in the kitchen. He loves Harley Davidson's, Game of Thrones, bad 80's rock music, dark rum and wife Laura.

Videography

``Looking for an alternative to the norm for your wedding video? I'm Elcee and I love telling stories in a FUN and WILD way with a killer soundtrack!`` - So says Elcee. OK, we should fess up, Elcee is actually Paul's better half Leah, but that doesn't change the fact that she has made some amazing films for TFD, Damo's wedding and many more. Check out her work at:

Walter Smith

Walter Smith

Florist

Walter Smith, AKA Chris & Andi, run an extremely successful florist shop in Shoreham. We met them when they started frequenting one of our pubs and Chris kept challenging us to games of pool. It goes without saying that Andi has all the talent in the family and we heartily recommend her work to you all:
