Manager to run wonderful pub
Manager to run wonderful pub in sought after Hampshire village
We are looking for a highly personable and charismatic couple/manager for a privately-owned, classic English pub in a lovely village in Hampshire.
Sadly, our current manager has to leave because of family circumstances so we are looking for a new manager. Directly relevant experience is important but so is a passion and commitment to retaining the friendly local pub atmosphere where people come to drink as well as enjoy excellent food. The business is long established and enjoys a busy trade including an enviable list of longstanding regulars from the local village and those around. We have a terrific chef and the food is wonderful as is the setting of a classic, 400 year-old country pub.
There is a large degree of autonomy with the role, so we are looking for a team with the desire to really be the face and personality of the pub for many years as well as taking pride in delivering high quality food and managing all elements of the business. As a couple, you must have strong experience working together with ideally one of you having been a full time chef to provide back up in the kitchen. It is expected that one or both of you hold a personal licence.
The position comes with a base salary, spacious living accommodation above the pub and a share of profits.
Note: with apologies, we can only reply to candidates who are being considered for the role
