There’s more to The Comfy Duck than the awards we’ve won, the local, season produce we source daily and the distinctive dishes we’re famous for. There’s a real sense of excitement every time we open our doors. We love what we do – and you can tell. We’re trying to create something truly unique and every member of our close-knit team is proud to be a part of it.
So please join us for special occasions, impromptu pick-me-ups or for no reason at all – and you’ll soon see what all the fuss is about.

Meet the Team
Grimsby born, Barry has worked locally recently but has enjoyed managerial stints in Manchester, Nottingham and Cambridge to name a few. In recent years however his heart has always been with the Oaklands and he has some great plans for the future of the hotel, we’ll keep you posted!
Growing up in his parent’s hotel on Skegness seafront, Scott started working in the hospitality industry from a very young age, waiting tables and washing pots. By the time he was 18 he also had Reception, Bar and Kitchen experience behind him.
He then spent 3 years at the University of Leicester following his beloved Leicester City Football Club home and away whilst also achieving a 2:1 in History.
With his history degree in the past, he joined the Oaklands fresh out of University in June 2013 mainly working Reception and Accounts.
Over the next few years, Scott worked his way through the ranks of the hotel before leaving his position of Operations Manager in February 2017 only to return to the hotel in May 2017 in order to push the hotel forward in light of the changes the hotel was undergoing at the time.
Ben Leeming joins us as Banqueting Manager. Ben began his career with us here at the Oaklands before going off and gaining experience from some other great hotels in North East Lincolnshire. Ben now re-joins us with his reputation as one of the best Master of Ceremonies in the area preceding him. During his spare time, Ben enjoys spending time with his children.
Food & Beverage Manager
Chris Dearing joins us as Food & Beverage Manager bringing with him a wealth of experience from his years in hospitality around the Humberside region. When he isn’t with us here at the hotel striving to drive the hotel & restaurant standards forward, Chris enjoys spending time with his wife Sharon and his children as well as following his beloved Hull City Football Club.
