About Us

Will, Lisa and Family…


Will and Lisa took over the Trengilly 10 years ago and have transformed the inn into a friendly, family retreat.  The family live onsite with their two children Jenny, Daniel and their dog, Whisky. Together, they have combined the award-winning Trengilly bistro and popular local pub with simple yet elegant Bed and Breakfast accommodation – all set amongst the Trengilly’s wonderful gardens.

The Team…


We’re very proud of our fantastic, experienced team here at the Trengilly Wartha Inn.

Head Chef – Nick Tyler has been working at the Trengilly for over 20 years. His enthusiasm for local produce and great food never wanes. With connections across the county, he selects the very best ingredients to make delicious food. He runs his kitchen team with an eye for detail and has won numerous awards over the years. The only draw back is his singing!

Sous Chef – Tom Pinch started at Trengilly at the age of 11 and trained in house, working his way up the ranks. He left for a while and worked away at some great hotels – now he’s back to put his experience in to creating some great dishes!

Kitchen Porter – Paddy Cullinam has worked for us for years and his job is to keep the kitchen running smoothly and cleanly.  He achieved 5 stars on our last Environmental Health Inspection and is the unsung hero of the team.

House Keeper – Liz Konic, the breakfast lady, is the one we miss most when she is on holiday. She serves our award winning breakfast and keeps our bar area ship shape.

House Keeper – Jayne Blackyear, runs all the Bed and Breakfast rooms with great efficiency.

Deborah Hassel is a great all-round member of the team. She is a great cook, producing fantastic desserts and often works on the bar.  She is someone we are happy to leave in charge when we take some time off.

Emily Sykes is young but very experienced.  She has worked for us since she was 14 years old and so knows the business inside out.

Part Timers – We have excellent part time staff who are all local, knowledgeable and provide excellent service.
