Melanie Marriott
MD and Founder
Darwin & Wallace

Melanie’s career in hospitality spans over 30 years, with considerable experience in the creation of female-friendly and food-led bars on the UK high street, most notably All Bar One (Mitchells and Butlers). Melanie founded Darwin & Wallace in 2012 with support from Imbiba having identified a gap in the market for individually designed, authentic bars with a sustainably produced food and drink offering that would resonate with the increasingly flexible lifestyles of discerning, well-travelled guests who were uninspired by commonly found pubs and bars with lacklustre food and drink menus.
