He says gin and she waffles at Cotswold pub

Best known for running outside catering businesses, The Craft Waffle Company and The Gin Bar, Will Rowe and Ayesha Robson, have decided to take a break from festivals and event catering management to run the well known Arkell’s Brewery pub, The Riverside in Lechlade.

Will is used to spinning shakers and mixing drinks, as he has also spent time working at some of the region’s best wine and cocktail bars. Ayesha has experience across the industry and is behind some of their Waffle Company’s creations, such as Pecan and Cinnamon Roll and the Banana Cake Waffle, some of which will be making an appearance on the Riverside Inn menu.

New Riverside Inn manager, Will said: “We are delighted to be joining such a famous and picturesque venue. We want to thank Arkell’s for giving us this opportunity. The Riverside is steeped in tradition and we hope we can continue this and add some of our own flare from our previous positions. The gin truck and the waffle Citroen HY van will be making appearances in the summer, so keep an eye out!”
