Meet the Team


Bourbons Coffee Shop was founded by Ashley and Darren after having a shared vision of creating a relaxing environment, for all to enjoy fantastic food and beverages.

Bourbons Coffee Shop gets its name from their first pet together, the little hamster Bourbon.


Ashley Whall
For many years Ashley's passion has been food and the service that comes with it. At Highbury College in Portsmouth he learnt skills in patisserie, the art of butchery, the quality of silver service and excelled in general cooking.
Throughout the years he has worked in a number of pubs and restaurants providing the high standard of food to exceed customer's expectations.
In 2015 he transferred to Butlins in Minehead to work for entertainments as a Redcoat where he was highly valued by the guests after the great service he provided. In 2016 he the moved across to the all singing american diner to cater for a large number of guests on a daily basis.
He now seeks to produce great food and drink whilst maintaining fantastic quality of service.
Darren Dimmock
Over the years Darren has gained a fantastic wealth of knowledge in customer service as well as leisure and hospitality, especially from his 6 years at Butlins Minehead.
Back in 2010 he started as a Redcoat at Butlins in Minehead, entertaining guests of all ages and then in 2016 trained to be assistant manager of the Sun and Moon Pub where serving customers was of the up most importance.
In late 2016 Darren moved back to Surrey where he began working for Premier Dining at Reigate Heath Golf Club to expand his skill set in organisation for a variety of events and functions.
His mission now is to use these skills to continue this great service at Bourbons Coffee Shop.
