Meet Rhomeo, Manager of The Plough

“I am ambitious to do things well,” says Rhomeo. “I want The Plough to be the best pub in Hampshire, and I’m committed to doing everything I can to help our team get there.”

Born in Angola and raised in London, Leonilson de Jesus Antonio is enjoying the challenge of getting to know the pub, his team and the Longparish community. Known in the music world by his stage name Jo Rhomeo, to us at The Plough he is simply Rhomeo.

Rhomeo has lived in the UK since 2003. After school in London, he took a degree in Electronic Engineering at Portsmouth University. But his job as a software engineer didn’t bring personal fulfilment, so he set out to explore his passion for food.

“As a single parent, my mother worked all hours. She and my Grandma taught me to cook from the age of seven. I loved to help them out as they prepared tasty Angolan and Portuguese dishes, with fresh seafood and wonderful stews – it really inspired me to cook and eat well.”

Rhomeo progressed through barista, bartender and supervisor jobs, working his way through to general manager and gaining a keen understanding of pub and restaurant life. Now at The Plough he is eager to work in partnership with our head chef, Billy, to bring delicious pub food to our customers.
