Meet The Team

We pride ourselves on first-class teamwork at HOME - and our customers are central to everything we do. HOME is jointly owned and run by two committed and highly-creative partners -  Gavin Marsden and Tom Fligg.

GAVIN is a highly talented and experienced chef who has worked in the industry for 18 years. He trained as an apprentice chef at a local two-rosette country pub/restaurant/hotel and at the age of 18 ran a pub - the youngest licensee in Yorkshire! After meeting Tom, the couple moved to Huddersfield to run a pub/restaurant together, before moving to Lindley to open HOME. He has extensive experience in all areas of the hospitality industry - including pubs, restaurants, hotels, outside catering and events.

TOM works as “front of house” manager at HOME and also has 18 years’ industry experience. He started working in events at a Yorkshire premiere wedding venue/hotel/spa, gaining invaluable experience. He worked his way up to operations manager before meeting and moving in with Gav and deciding to work together.

The couple moved to Huddersfield  to open HOME in Lindley. The rest, as they say, is history!

Looking ahead, they plan to build the brand, open another restaurant and launch an outside catering/events service. Watch this space!

Tom and Gavin are supported by the following team members:
