We're all about delivering brilliant food, drinks + service
Prior to opening P+A we owned + ran a successful restaurant in Spain for 7 years. With a young family (+ dog called Gizmo) we decided to head back home to the UK. Alan is originally from Esher + Surrey was always where we considered our home so here we are!
P+A is dog friendly too so our four legged friends don’t need to wait out in the cold.
Meet The Team
There is not enough space to introduce you to all of our lovely team but here are a few of us!
Alan is a skilled chef with loads of experience at some of London’s top restaurants - most notable The Ivy where he trained for just under 5 years under culinary legends Mark Hix, Alan Bird + Tim Hughes. When he is not in the kitchen he can be found either kicking a football with his 3 year old son Noah or at the Emirates as he is a HUGE Arsenal fan!

Sonia lead the font of house team at their restaurant in Spain but now having a young family means she is behind the scenes. Usually sitting in the corner at P+A, drinking flat whites + on her laptop working away! When not working she's chasing around a toddler or cooking up a storm for her family.
Lamb neck fillet, smoked aubergine puree, quinoa tabbouleh + cucumber yogurt
Andy is our blue eyed manager who most of you will see running the cafe daily. Prince Charming to some of our lovely customers he strives to deliver amazing service + always has a smile. When away from P+A Andy is a massive Chelsea fan so that doesn’t leave time for much else!
