Mark Cribb

Managing Director, Urban Guild

Mark Cribb is the founder and MD of Urban Guild – a small group of restaurants, bars and a hotel in Bournemouth, offering guests home-grown food, craft beer, curious cocktails and seductive coffees and cakes. Founded in 2005, it was Mark’s travels that inspired him to ‘continue the adventure’ back home, creating a breed of hospitality that oozed the love, laughter and kindness he’d experienced whilst backpacking.

A successful entrepreneur, Mark continues to champion hospitality nationally through his weekly podcast ‘Humans of Hospitality’, where he interviews the humans, rather than the brands behind the hospitality industry.
