The industry is mourning the loss of Bryan Wardman, former joint managing director of Amber Taverns, who passed away peacefully at home on August 19.

Wardman, who was 68, was an HND graduate of Blackpool College in 1975 and went on to have a varied and successful career with Electrolux before moving to pub companies and ending at Amber Taverns.

Husband of Carole, brother and brother-in-law to Robert and Andrea, a great friend to wider family, as well as to so many other good friends and acquaintances; well known to all in the industry for his focus and determination to succeed, Wardman achieved a special place in his success in the hospitality industry and with Amber Taverns. 

He was equally as well-known as for his huge enthusiasm, unique sense of humour and storytelling ability. There was always a smile on everyone’s face when Bryan was around, the family said.

His lifelong passions which continued into his retirement in North Berwick in Scotland were golf, gardening, music, writing poetry, cooking, pork pie making, birdwatching, wine tasting, travel, and eating out, as well as his total dedication and devotion to his wife Carole.

A celebration of his life will be held at Morton Hall Crematorium, Edinburgh at 2pm on September 22, all are welcome to attend, with a gathering afterwards at Charwood in Edinburgh. Dress code is bright colours for ladies, and blue and white check shirts for the man, in honour of Wardman’s favourite.
