Mannings Men: Tom Hatfield, Front of House

Mannings front of house star, travel enthusiast and trainee rugby coach Tom Hatfield gives us his take on life in the city:

Hi Tom, nice to meet you! How long have you worked at Mannings?

I’ve worked here for fifteen months since taking time out from a rugby career in Dubai.

What’s your favourite part of the job?

I love the customer interaction; I can guarantee that by the end of the night I’ll know something special about my table, and they’ll know something about me!

What do you do when you’re not serving and smiling?

I’m currently studying sports coaching at Truro College, which is quite handy being so close to the city centre!

Are you a local boy?

I don’t have the accent, but I’m actually from Liverpool. My mum’s lived in Australia for the past eight years…my family’s everywhere!

Wow, which Mannings cocktail would you choose for her?

Hmm, that’s a hard one…I’d buy her a Parma Violet, she loves the sweet stuff!
