The Team

Most of the team here at Sunnyhills were inherited from the previous owners and we are incredibly proud of their hard work & dedication to the business. All Sunnyhills staff live locally, therefore are more than happy to pass on any local knowledge & suggest places to visit if you are holidaying in Northumberland.

Toby & Tori 


Tori & Toby moved to Northumberland from Yorkshire in March, 2015. Toby was previously the Assistant Manager of an Italian chain in York & Tori worked for Pavers Shoes looking after TV & catalogue production.  Managing the Farm Shop is a completely different challenge but one they are working hard to achieve and finding incredibly rewarding. They both love meeting regulars & visitors to the area and strive to offer a fantastic service every time you visit Sunnyhills.



Head Chef

Richard joined us over the Summer as Head Chef at Sunnyhills. He has been busy coming up with some wonderful new menus and ever changing specials. We are really pleased to welcome him to the team and are looking forward to introducing his menus and changes over the winter months!



Craig works alongside Richard in the kitchen and has really helped us grow the evening meals over the past 6 months. Craig started at Sunnyhills as a KP 4 years ago and has since been to college to gain his qualifications. 



Edith is another valued, long standing member of our kitchen team and her scones are delicious!



Robyn is another fantastic member of our team. She works alongside Toby in the cafe and makes a point of getting to know all of our local, regular customers well.




Becky is the shop supervisor and has worked at Sunnyhills since the very first day it opened! She always has a smile for customers and staff alike and will strive to offer the very best service she can on every occasion!



Heather runs the deli and is without doubt our biggest personality! Our customers return time and time again in the knowledge that she will bring a smile to their faces with her bubbly personality. If you haven't tried one of Heather's home made pies or scotch eggs from our deli then you are in for a treat!



Debbie is one of our newest members of the team, although she worked at Sunnyhills when the business was first opened, so she knows the ropes well! Debbie mainly supports Heather on the Deli and Becky in the shop, however you will see her pop up in the restaurant from time to time!
