We are more interested in a chap or chapess who wants to have a part to play in a swiftly evolving company whilst running a truly beautiful business. Frankly, who wouldn’t want that?

The right candidate will have a natural gift for hospitality and be able to motivate and lead a team through their passion, their example and their commitment.
  • As General Manager you will be a master of all trades who can bang out great tasting coffee, epitomise great bar service, look slick on the restaurant floor and do it all with a dazzling smile and aura of calm competence.
  • A calm and organised individual with a structured and systematic approach to training, preparation and shift management, who is as comfortable setting up an MS Excel Spread sheet as they are tapping a cask of ale. 
  • A big personality who can lead from the front, with a wicked eye for detail, and is a highly organised and effective man manager.
  • Someone who can get our new Lounge up and running and smoothly integrate us into the local community
