The New Blood


We’d like to welcome two members to the Cirrus Family: Paolo Corgiolu (PC) as the new landlord for King John Inn, Wiltshire and Ollie Callaghan (OC) who will look after The Yew Tree, Highclere.

We have asked them a few questions to break the ice:

Dead or alive – who would you most like to have dinner with?

OC: Would have to go for dinner with Adele, just because it’s Adele!

PC: I would have dinner with my wife Melanie. I know, I am so romantic!

What would you eat at this dinner?

OC: Sushi and cocktails!

PC: We’d start with a Negroni as an aperitif. The starter would be a pan-fried foie gras followed by a Fiorentina steak, cooked rare with skinny fries and rocket salad. I’d skip the dessert and choose a nice selection of cheese instead. My meal would be complemented with a bottle of Turriga Isola dei Nuraghi 2008.

What was the last lie you told?

OC: I’ve never lied…Or have I?

PC: I told my old manager that I wasn’t going to leave the Bailiwick although I was already looking for a new job to get closer to my family. Oops.
